(WYLIE, Texas) — Northern Texas got pummeled with massive hail Monday evening.

The small town of Wylie, Texas — near Dallas — was devastated by hail that caused significant damage to homes and cars.

Social media lit up with comparison shots of how big the hail stones were — some clocking in as large as a baseball.
