WORLD'S LARGEST HAILSTONE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's largest hailstone?
On September 03, 1970 in Coffeyville, Kansas a
hailstone fell with a diameter of a 5.7 inches, a circumference of 17.5 inches
and a weight of 1.67 pounds. It held the record for the world's largest
hailstone for over 30 years until...
....June 22, 2003 when a storm pounded Aurora, Nebraska dropping tennis-sized
hail at will.
The largest hailstone recovered from that storm
officially measured 7 inches in diameter and had a circumference of 18.75
inches, this after a good chunk of it was broken off upon impact and some it it
was lost to melting before it could be measured.
Hailstones exceeding 10 inches in diameter have been
reported on occasion, but the Aurora hailstone is the world's largest hailstone
ever officially recorded.
