As storms continue to hit Colorado, large amounts of hail are being reported in the Centennial Area.

Larry Ryckman, Editor of the Colorado Sun, took to Twitter to share footage of hail piling up on a outdoor deck at around 1:30 PM on Friday, followed by the description "one foot drift already." The video was reportedly taken in Centennial.

The National Weather Service had posted a severe thunderstorm warning in the Centennial, Parker, and Littleton area, impacting more than 500,000 people. The warning predicted winds of up to 60 miles per hour and half-dollar-size hail. This warning was set to expire at 2 PM.

Always take warnings from the National Weather Service seriously. Remember they have radar and you don't !
