CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The National Weather Service says severe thunderstorm warnings for much of New Hampshire will remain in effect at least until 10 p.m.

The weather service reported hail the size of a quarter rained down on Alstead and area communities. The fast-moving storm is spreading from northeast from Cheshire County and western Merrimack County. There was a brief tornado watch just north of Keene, but that expired at 4:15 p.m.

The weather service says the thunderstorm warning remains in effect at least until 10 p.m.

The forecast says winds in excess of 60 mph and deadly lightning strikes are possible.

The weather service is warning people to move or stay indoors and to stay away from windows.
