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

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...

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...
