DENTON, TX – Cleanup is underway after a wicked storm dumped hail as big as baseballs on Denton, Texas.

As tornado sirens sounded, some people ran for their lives.

Others just freaked the hail out.

“I don’t know what to do, I’ve never been in a storm like this, I’m not from here,” one woman said as she left a shopping center.

“It was a little terrifying, I’m not going to lie to nobody,” one man said as he took shelter at an autobody shop.

At the local Walmart, ice punched holes through 200 skylights, and college students at both Texas Women’s and North Texas Universities got an important lesson in cause and effect.

“I’m probably going to have to get the entire back window replaced,” said TWU student Allison Belding.

“I have never seen a storm like this in Denton before. It was really crazy,” said a UNT student as he checked out the damage in a school parking lot.

The crazy weather didn’t end in the Lone Star State, it brought misery to Missouri.

An EF-One tornado touched down in University City, just outside St. Louis, snapping trees like twigs, and ripping roofs right off homes.

Even though an EF-One sounds ‘weak’, these suckers bring winds as high as 110 miles-per-hour.

Heavy rain also caused flooding in parts of Missouri, prompting a few high water rescues.

There is, however, a silver lining.

No one was hurt or killed.
