Salisbury, NC -- The severe storm that brought lightning, rain and a whole lot of hail this past weekend really pounded parts of the Piedmont Triad. Some areas received so much hail, snow plow drivers were sent to clear some roadways.

WFMY News 2 talked to folks in Davie County Sunday as the storm was still in progress. A Davie Co. 911 dispatcher said his commute on Highway 64 was like driving in a snow storm. He estimated that there were three to four inches of hail on the highway.

And in Rowan County, the NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT) had to dispatch snow plows for some hail covered roads.

According to NCDOT, about six to eight inches of hail fell in a five mile area between the Mt. Ulla community and the Woodleaf community. The roads were deemed impassable. Crews reported hail drifts against buildings measured up to 4.5 feet deep in some places, making it look more snow.

Around 4:00am NCDOT said they determined it was necessary to send out road crews. They dispatched maintenance crews out in a motor grader and a dump truck equipped with a plow to push the accumulated hail off the pavement.
