According to National Weather Service Meteorologist Joe Harris, heavy rainfall and ping pong to golf ball size hail can be expected around 4 p.m. in the northern and eastern parts of Killeen and Fort Hood. However, heavy rain and some hail was seen falling by 3 p.m.
Traffic on parts of U.S. Highway 190 in Killeen was nearly at a standstill due the heavy rain and hail, made worse by high winds.
