Andy Leibenguth, Tamaqua, uses a camera to document the size of hail that fell Thursday evening in Tamaqua, demonstrating that chunks of ice were about the size of a billiard ball, seen in the center of the ice chunks. Checking out the results is Courtney Postupack, 9, Tamaqua. The severe hail storm appeared to cause damage to virtually every automobile parked outdoors in the community. When the storm finally abated, vehicle owners were dismayed to find dents, like pock marks, on their vehicle roofs, hoods and trunks.
