Oahu residents didn?t know what to make of the noisemakers that came raining down on the windward side Friday.
It was like almost like Christmas for the Alo family.
They froze the huge chunks of ice that came down in their back yard.
"It was kind of exciting, like seeing snow for the first time or something. We woke the kids up to look out and took videos," said Kaahu Alo.
The hail cracked the window of Aikahi Gardens manager Marjee Kress' unit.
"Before 6 a.m. we heard pounding. We thought someone was breaking in and we looked out there was giant-size golf ball hail came down and it covered the yards," said Kress.
The residents said they had never seen anything so stunning.
"No. We lived on the mainland in Arizona. I've seen hail, but not this big. I was kind of worried about our cars. Alarms were going off all over," said Kaahu Alo.
In the light of day, families came out to inspect the damage.
There were lots of dents to deal with.
