As of late, Texas weather has been very harmful to the state.

Many businesses and individuals have been affected by the recent heavy storms in Texas. Tornados also have touched down in various parts of the state. Videos and pictures of the aftermath have been posted all over social media.

In these photos, Texans can see the extent of the damage, from damaged glass to roof damage. One of main causes of the damage is hail. Some hail in the state has been very big in size.

One recent discovery in the Lone Star State may have broken a record, but it may take some time before we truly know.

One Large Piece Of Hail In Texas May Have Set A New Record

As reported by the Amarillo Globe-News, a post to Facebook revealed a massive piece of hail that came down during the storms in the Lone Star State:

The Amarillo Globe-News states that the hail pictured was found in Vigo Park. It was an estimated to be 7.25 inches in size. This could possibly eclipse the previous record of largest piece of hail in Texas.

The previous record, set in 2021, was a hail piece that measured 6.4 inches. It was found in Hondo, Texas. But before the breaking of the record is confirmed, certain requirements must be met.

Per The Amarillo Globe-News, The Texas State Climate Extremes Committee must meet and confirm that it is indeed the size estimated. At the time of writing, it has not been confirmed as such.

As this is a developing story, we will have more information when it becomes available.
