CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 25 (UPI) -- Weather forecasters said they tallied 80 different reports of hail after a line of storms rolled through Virginia and the Carolinas Saturday.

The hailstones ranged in size from 1 inch to nearly 3 inches and piled up nearly 6 inches deep in some areas, the AccuWeather Storm Prediction Center said.

AccuWeather said damage reports consisted largely of dents and broken windshields on cars caught in the violent weather. Some intersections were flooded as the stones melted away in the relatively pleasant temperatures.

Radar picked up rotation forming in the some of the storm cells, but no tornadoes were reported, AccuWeather said.
