rough weather in this area yesterday

(apologies if this has been posted, I looked and didn't find anything)

There was one man killed in downtown St. Louis when high winds collapsed a tent.

And there was hail on the Illinois side of the river, which didn't get much coverage in the news:

Here was the hail coming down in our area:


A pic of one of the golf-ball (or larger) size pieces of hail:


Our car was dented and we had some damage to the vinyl siding on the north side of our house. Several broken windshields in our area as well.
