Summary of all Local Storm Reports (LSRs) on April 10th, as well as all the LSRs across the region for this event (regional map may take a minute to load).

The estimated 4-inch hail report (near softball size) in Orange Beach, AL (Baldwin County) a historic event for our area. Looking back at records since 1950, this is only the second documented 4-inch hail report in the 20 counties that we serve in southeast Mississippi, southwest/south-central Alabama, and northwest Florida. The other 4-inch hail report was documented on July 22, 2018 in Andalusia, AL (Covington County).

In addition, this is by far the largest hailstone ever recorded in Baldwin County. Prior to today, the largest hail recorded was 2-inch (hen egg size) in Foley, AL on July 22, 2017.
