Hail and tornadoes strike US


Hail and tornadoes have struck in the northeast and mountain regions of the United States.

At least one large tornado touched down in Colorado.

In some parts of New Jersey, a powerful thunderstorm dropped more than three inches of hail.

Residents there had to free a car from a pile of hail that covered the ground like snow.
