    Hi All!

    A huge stormy cloud developed during late afternoon and evening at 19th of June 2007 in eastern parts of Bosnia and Hercegovina. The cloud looked like this just before 7PM:

    Finally the "show" started. The storm hitted the eastern Bosnian city of Gorazde. Gale force winds, and than hail stones size of a tennis ball. The eyewitness say that some stones were up to 4kg! In storm many people were injured, a lot of cars, roots, windows... were destroyed. here are some of the pictures from Gorazde web site:

    I wrote to the web Gorazde, and they said to me that the information about 4kg hailstone is probably correct, many people who witntessed confirm this. The latest infomations says that 4 people were hitted by this hail!

    There have been unconfirmed information that one hailstone in the village Desevo weighted 6kg!

    There are also infomations that some of the huge hailsotned are being kept in the fridges!

    That lot deserves a Net Weather Oscar B)

    I watched all 5 videos and came to the conclusion that my roof would leak badly after such an onslaught and would need replacement :drinks: (nervous laugh)

    Nice reporting Rade and thank you.

    Russ.

    No chance were they 4 kilograms, that would mean that they contain 4 litres of water. If it was a cube then it would be 16cmx16cmx16cm (6"x6"x6") of water. I cant remember the formula for the volume of a sphere, but it would be very large. There is no way that they were that size
