The Largest Hailstone Ever Recorded In The United States

"Even after melting, the stone [produced from the thunderstorm that struck Vivian, South Dakota, U.S. of A., on 23 July 2010] still measured 8.0 inches in diameter and weighed nearly 2 pounds (1 pound, 15 ounces) with a circumference of 18.62 inches."
