BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Storms that have passed through the Dakotas this week have dumped heavy rain and large hail and spawned funnel clouds.

Storms late Tuesday dropped hail as large as golf balls in the southwestern North Dakota community of Glen Ullin. Resident Amy Heinle tells KXMB-TV that some of the hail was jagged, and it put dings in her vehicle.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that hail also was reported in the Hebron, Taylor and Strasburg areas, raising fears about crop damage. Funnel clouds also were spotted by Hebron, and a weak tornado was reported near Killdeer. There were no immediate reports of damage.

The western South Dakota town of Piedmont is recovering from golf ball-size hail and 6 inches of rain Monday night. Flash flooding damaged homes and roads in the community.
