Afternoon thunderstorm descends on Cobb

COBB – An afternoon thunderstorm and hail surprised Cobb residents Sunday afternoon.

Cobb resident Roger Kinney reported that thunderclouds formed over the area within an hour Sunday afternoon, with a dry lightning and thunderstorm beginning at about 5:15 p.m.

Within 10 minutes it started to rain, said Kinney, with that quickly turning to hail. He estimated the temperature dropped at least 10 degrees in 30 minutes.

The storm, he said, “caught me completely off guard.”
