— Officials in Woodward County say softball-sized hail caused an estimated $250,000 in damage after severe storms swept through the area Monday night, injuring three people.

Woodward County Emergency Manager Matt Lehenbauer says an infant was injured by glass from a shattered car window and another person was hit in the face by a softball-sized hail stone that broke through a car window.

Lehenbauer tells the Woodward News the storms caused at least a quarter-million dollars in damage to buildings and vehicles.

Sheriff Gary Stanley says one inmate suffered a cut on his back after he was hit by a hail stone that broke through the jail’s skylights.

The National Weather Service says a reported tornado east of Sharon destroyed a metal shed and detached a home’s roof.
