BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Thunderstorms early Friday morning dropped lots of hail and caused some damage in parts of Alabama.

The National Weather Service received more than a dozen reports of hail Friday morning, most of it west of Interstate 65.  Hail stones as large as baseballs were reported in several counties, including Marion, Lamar, Winston, and Walker counties.

In addition, wind from severe thunderstorms downed trees and blew the windows out of a building in Hamilton.  

No injuries were reported from any of Friday's storms.

The storms also dumped more rain across central Alabama. Nearly an inch of rain fell across the Birmingham area Friday morning, adding to the nearly five inches of rain that fell on Wednesday and Thursday.  Flash flood warnings were issued in several locations across Alabama again on Friday morning as the storms passed.
