That's not really all that unusual here... I have seen Grapefruit sized hail before - though that is pretty unusual... Auto body shops do a good business repairing hail damage here...

Hail can come in many sizes, sometimes as large as a Major League baseball http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=184295&st=0&p=3469515&hl=hail%20baseball%20size&fromsearch=1entry3469515

I didn't a specific answer after a quick google search so I'll ask here, anyone know if houses are specifically built to withstand repeated baseball-sized hail impacts where such events happen like they're built to resist earthquakes here in California?

Generally, the wind causes much more damage than large hailstones... About 15 years ago we had sustained straight line winds of 100 MPH (160 kph) (NOT a tornado)... It tore bricks out of houses... If you watch closely, you'll see that they really aren't falling that fast - about the speed of a thrown ball... Normal roofing can withstand that fo...

While most newer houses do indeed have garages... the town of Woodward is a bit more rural - and many houses have no garage - sometimes a carport but that is often just sheet metal over a frame... edit: plus a lot of people who have garages - tend to use them for storage - and a car would not actually fit in there... My ex-wife was convinced that our garage was a place to store all the shoes and other junk she b...
