APRIL 13, 2013-LATE NIGHT SVR T-STORM HAIL CORE PUNCH-NORTHEAST ST. MARTINVILLE, LA
So we had these storm start popping up in the North GOM late Saturday night (04/13/13). One went Severe T-Storm Warned, moving about 55mph and was headed towards St. Martinville. So I decided to give it a shot. Set up about 8mi east of town but quickly determined I needed to head west towards town. Got into some rain and wind then hit the hail core. This hail shaft was about 1 mile wide. Very unusual for my area. Hail was in the nickel to penny size range. It only lasted a few minutes, but came down hard enough to cover the ground.

Sorry for the crappy video, but I don't have any mounts and the roads were not the best:
