MANITOWOC - People along the Lakeshore are checking out the damage after the area was hit by hail Thursday.
The biggest hail was seen in Manitowoc. Some of it was about the size of a tennis ball.
"This morning you really got the clarification that yeah we got hit hard," said Scottie Smits, Manitowoc.
The hail left behind dented vehicles, a cracked windshield, and holes in the garage gutter at Scottie Smits' home.
"It started with little ping pong ball of hail and then all of a sudden it grew into tennis balls and it just started coming down," said Smits.
Smits says the hail came around 6 o'clock and lasted about 15 minutes.
"It started to hit pretty hard so I got my kids away from the window," said Sarah Tegelman, Manitowoc.
The severe weather also damaged his girlfriend's apartment complex, breaking a number of windows in the building.
"I was kind of fearing for my kids thinking that maybe they would get hit with the glass if the windows had got shattered," said Tegelman.
After the storm, other Manitowoc residents discovered the hail had sliced into the siding on their homes.
"We got two sides of the house, the east side and the north side that sustained some vinyl siding damage as well as a couple of cracked windows," said Bill Dietrich, Manitowoc.
Not only did Dietrich's siding get damaged, so did all of the landscaping and the lawn where the hail dug in.
"We've got our builder called and he's going to be coming out the insurance adjuster is going to come out and take a look at it it'll get fixed that's the bright side of things," said Dietrich.
As people survey the damage, city crews are working to clean up the leaves, sticks and branches that the storm left behind.
"We're cleaning off the top of the catch basins in case we get any more rain because otherwise the streets will flood and we have the sweepers out cleaning up," said Steve Paquette, Manitowoc Public Works Department.
Paquette says the hail only hit one big swath right through the middle of the city, but there's still plenty to do.
"There's a lot of stuff to pick up, but we're hitting it the best we can."
Manitowoc's Public Works Department will conduct an emergency storm damage brush pickup beginning Monday.
Officials say brush must be placed between the sidewalk and curb by 7 a.m.
Any brush placed after this time, may result in a minimum charge of $100.
