This very well may be a record-breaking hailstone that fell in Sanford in central Covington County… Some of the hailstones today were absolutely *massive.* For comparison, this would be close in size to Alabama’s largest hailstones ever recorded (back in March in Cullman County).
Just in from @NWSMobile… I don’t see how this can’t be a local record. ?? At 1:20 PM CDT, 2 NNW Sanford [Covington Co, AL] PUBLIC reports HAIL of grapefruit size (E4.00 INCH). PICTURE ON SOCIAL MEDIA OF 4 INCH+ HAILSTONE NEAR SANFORD, AL.
