A watermelon sized hail stone that hit Hackensack, New Jersey.

HACKENSACK, New Jersey - Meteorologists in the Garden State of New Jersey report that watermelon sized hail pounded the city of Hackensack for 17 minutes.

Luckily for the citizens of the city, the hailstorm hit at 2:39 am and there were no reported injuries except to a few stray alley cats, (the four-legged variety not the two-legged variety).

The hail storm hit without warning and several individuals said that the noise hitting their homes and apartments sounded like 20 times the sound of popcorn popping.

One Hackensack resident, Garlanda McAdoo, 84, said that she has lived in the city all her life and she had never ever seen hail the size of friggin watermelons.

Garlanda said that once, back in September of 1958, she did see hail the size of croquet balls.

City officials estimate that damages from the hail storm will exceed $13.9 million mostly to smaller cars like KIA Spectras, KIA Optimas, and KIA Rios.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
