Hail hammers Minneapolis during Friday evening commute

Large hail hammered the Twin Cities metro on Friday, with some of the most intense hitting Minneapolis during the Friday evening commute. 

The hailstorm brought traffic to a halt on Interstate 35W and Interstate 394, where some drivers stopped under overpasses to shelter their vehicles.

The storms also created some flooding on Minneapolis streets. A submitted video showed parked cars sitting in water up to the headlights on Garfield Avenue in the Wedge neighborhood.

And outside the James Ballentine Uptown VFW, hail splashed into shallow flood water just off Lyndale Avenue.
