Mother Nature had her own fireworks on display across Colorado on Sunday as severe storms hit the area southeast of Denver near Kiowa, CO during the late evening hours.
In the video shot by BNVN Weather Paparazzi Tony Laubach, along CO-86 in and around Kiowa, Colorado, baseball size hail was falling as several vehicles were stopped on the side of the road waiting for the storm to pass.
Tony shot dramatic footage of baseball size hail bouncing hard and high off the ground. The hail falling was a mix of Golf Ball and Baseball sized hail. Video then moves to several damaged windshields, including storm chaser vehicle from inside. Golf ball sized hail was collected and put against several damaged windshields to give a perspective of the damage. There is a point of view shot as chasers approach Kiowa, CO with water tower in the background and half a foot of hail on the highway. Various shots of hail accumulating in town. Also includes shots of a store keeper brushing accumulating hail from his porch and post-storm hail on the ground and fog created by the hail cooling the air.
Then Tony goes onto Elizabeth, CO as an earlier storm that moved through the area dumped several inches of rain in less than 1 hour. There are various shots of vehicles driving through rushing waters across the roadways as well as various in-town flooding shots as the water slowly drains away.
