Stockbyte/Thinkstock(HONOLULU) — Unusual weather patterns, dubbed “unprecedented” by the National Weather Service, moved across the Hawaiian Islands during the past few days.

Reports of tornados and thunderstorms were prevalent. A 30-minute hailstorm over Oahu on Friday pounded the island with pellets the size of tennis balls, according to the National Weather Service in Honolulu. Some hail stones reached a record size of 3 inches wide.

No injuries were reported in the storms.
