Strong, slow-moving storms brought downpours of rain and hail to some parts of the KJAN listening area, Sunday evening. The storms began to form over parts of Audubon and Guthrie Counties at around 3:45-p.m., with the first warning coming in at 4:15.

A few minutes later, law enforcement reported golf ball-sized hail had fallen 6-miles north/northeast of the Audubon Municipal Airport. A separate batch of storms forming over far western Pottawattamie County brought Nickel-sized hail just before 5-p.m., to an area 4-miles northeast of Council Bluffs. And, just after 5-p.m., the storms which lingered over Audubon County, brought quarter-sized hail to an area 3-miles south/southeast of the Audubon Airport.

There were no immediate reports of damage.
