OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A severe thunderstorm that blew across the Oklahoma City metropolitan area has left broken windshields in its wake.
The windshields were shattered Sunday afternoon by hail reportedly up to the size of softballs.
It stalled traffic along Interstates 35 and 40. So much hail fell that enough ice accumulated on the ground to make it appear as if a snowstorm had hit the area.
Fire Chief Cecil Clay said his agency had responded to several traffic accidents. Clay said fire trucks were also sent to several sites where fires were reported, but the firefighters found only water vapor rising into the air from hail on the ground, appearing to be smoke.
