It was a rough drive for this weather chaser during a massive storm.

Parts of Oklahoma and Kansas were recently pounded by hail.

The driver's windshield was destroyed by the massive, tennis ball sized, hail stones.

In Kansas, a tornado was reported near Garden Plain, and another was seen near Medicine Lodge, Kansas. A tornado watch was issued for Sedgwick, Butler, Cowley, Harper, Kingman and Sumner counties until midnight.

In Wichita, the fire marshal urged residents to be prepared for severe weather by assembling a preparedness kit, in case power goes out, and be ready to move to a basement or an interior room with no windows.
