TKW 7.5 kg. Observed fall 13 July 2011, Ile-de-France, France.

From the MetBul:
A 206 g stone was found in a roof in Draveil on July 13, 2011, by N. and J.-P. Eydens and reported to P.-M. Pelé and A. Jambon (UPVI) a few days after the event. It was later discovered that a 5.2 kg stone had been seen to fall in a garden by a mailman in Savigny sur Orge at 12:30 am (local time) on that same day. Two more stones (88 g and 2 kg) made holes and dents in roofs in Draveil and Grigny, and a fifth one was later found by two schoolgirls in the park of the Rosa Parks high school in Montgeron. One was reported to have crashed through the windshield of a car in Draveil.
