MORROW, Ga. -

Hail from Monday's storm caused a lot of harm at a car dealership in Morrow. Every vehicle at the Nissan South dealership was damaged, according to store officials.

Some vehicles had their windows broken, while others were had numerous dents from the golf ball-sized hail. Employees said that the hail fell for about an hour.

"It was scary and very, very loud, you know, sounded like bombs maybe dropping and stuff like that," said Joseph Perelion.

Most of the 372 vehicles had a minimum of 20 dings from the storm, according to store officials.

Sales manager Chris White said that the damage totaled nearly $500,000.

White said that the dealership would offer customers a deal  -- $100 a ding -- on the vehicles impacted by the hail.

The Toyota dealership next door said that around 200 vehicles there were also damaged.
