The storm affected Berkeley Springs, Hedgesville, Martinsburg, Kerneysville, and Shepherdstown. Eyewitness accounts told of hail as large as baseballs. Three hours after storm the hail had melted to the size of ping pong balls. Many windows were smashed, vehicles dented, and trees were stripped of leaves.
