Tennis ball-sized hail, tornado highlight week full of severe weather

May and June are prime time for tornadoes and severe weather across the United States, and this past week was a prime example.

The week began with tennis ball-sized hail across Colorado, causing widespread damages to windshields parked anywhere near the storm.

The severe thunderstorms continued to trek eastward throughout the week, leaving wind, hail and in a few instances, tornado damages in their wake.
