The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex area was hard hit by a hailstorm Thursday morning. Large hail pounded cars during the morning commute. The hail was so thick on the ground in some areas, it looked like snow.

CBS-DFW reports a local ambulance provider was severely hampered by hail damage. MedStar ambulances were out servicing the many accidents on the roads when they became victims of the storm.

According to Matt Zavadsky of MedStar, 11 ambulances were brought out of service because of heavy hail damage.

The storm was moving northeast just before 9 a.m., dropping quarter-sized hail on North Denton County.
