Unbelievable Hail Storm in Texas

Storified by Accu Weather · Thu, Apr 12 2012 08:22:39

National Weather Service Amarillo:
We received this photo showing just how deep the hail was in northern Potter County.

Facebook commenter Casey Criswell wrote "There was 3-4" of pea-size hail and major flash flooding. You're looking at a deposit of hail (wow, it floats) left behind by the flood. The "fog" is a ton of ice melting on a still warm day. It's happened all over TX over the years."
We received this photo from earlier this eveningFacebook
