IRON COUNTY, Utah — Residents in some parts of southwestern and central-eastern Utah were pelted with massive hailstones Sunday afternoon.

Many of them, especially residents of Cedar City and Enoch, posted photos and videos in FOX 13's Facebook group: "Utah's Weather Authority."

Some clips of the hail falling can be seen in the video above.
