Jacksonville, Fl - Memorial Day plans were brought to a halt on Monday afternoon when a severe storm system moved across Northeast Florida.
One resident tells WOKV he never saw hail as big as what fell from the sky.
"It was just going one way at one time and then it turned around and came the other way. When it came the other way that's when the hail size increased" said John Wright.
The storm brought strong winds and hail. One of the hardest-hit areas was South Metro, where around 150 customers lost power.
"I’d say the hail size increased to a quarter. I mean it just came down. It was whipping the trees back and forth. It was something I’ve never experienced as long as I’ve lived in Jacksonville."
In Clay County, emergency manager John Ward says the storm put a damper on Memorial Day festivities. The thunderstorm prompted a brief tornado warning for about a half hour. Residents were told to take cover and stay indoors.
"The city of Green Cove had their Memorial Day festivities that were cancelled."
A fireworks show was held late Monday night in Green Cove Springs after the storm system moved out.
There were reports of downed trees and power lines. But we've learned there are no reports of any injuries.
