RICHMOND (KRON) — Residents in parts of the East Bay woke up Friday morning to blankets of hail on the ground.

The storm hit the Bay Area Thursday morning bringing thunder, lightning and heavy rain to Northern California and snow to the Sierras.

The thunderstorm Thursday night brought hail to the East Bay in the evening around San Ramon. Then around 2 a.m. Friday morning, hail began to fall again in other parts of the East Bay like Richmond and El Cerrito.

Residents were shocked when they came outside to see blankets of hail covering the ground, so much hail is looks like snow.
