Half Inch of Hail Covers Ground In Kent East Hill


Freak hail storm leaves local community covered.

Kent WA: This afternoon around 1p.m., Kent East Hill was hit with a storm that produced in some areas up to a half inch of pea-sized hail. This storm lasted close to an hour and covered everything that it could.

Due to the time of the storm, schools in the area had to delay the release of students due to dangerous conditions outside. Some school bus routes were also altered or cancelled because of the slick roadways following the storm.

As you commute home tonight just be aware there is still a good amount of hail on sidewalks, side roads, and parking lots in the East Hill Communities.
