A powerful hailstorm killed at least two animals and injured 14 people when it struck the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Monday, August 6. Softball-sized hailstones smashed through car windshields and dented vehicles, as seen in eyewitness footage shared from visitors at the zoo. Cheyenne Mountain Zoo said in a statement shared on Facebook a cape vulture and a muscovy duck were killed in the storm and the zoo would be closed Tuesday for repairs. KRDO reported that five people were taken to hospital after being injured in the storm at the zoo. Credit: scottandvanessa via Storyful
