Photos and videos from Wednesday's hail storm that hit part of the Texas panhandle tell a pretty amazing story.

Nickel-sized hailstones fell so fast and so furiously that they were pushed into drifts that in some places ended up about 4-feet high.

The National Weather Service's Amarillo office has more images and explanations on its Facebook page.
