ST. CHARLES COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – Hail the size of baseballs left some gaping holes in the windows of luxury vehicles on the Plaza Motors West lot in St. Charles County.

“There’s a ton of damage on the cars out here,” said Tom Baty, General Manager.

One longtime salesman said he had never seen hail that big before.  The damaged vehicles will be sold at a discount, or customers can pay to have them repaired.

There was also roof damage in some neighborhoods.

“You can see there’s torn shingles and sidings broken, and that sort of thing,” said David Edmiston, Homestar Contracting.

Baty estimated more than 100 of his 150 vehicles were damaged.
