JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Putnam County had been dealing with an isolated severe thunderstorm between Satsuma and Rodman. Exact Track Radar showing hail was nearly 2″ in size between the two towns. That kind of hail will leave a dent (or two, or three, or....) in cars and trucks. It may also cause some roof damage too!

That storm faded quickly as it moved slowly north.
