North Texas Hail Damage Reports Confirmed

It looks like the whole north side of the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex had a series of nasty storms move across last night and I've been able to run down a few hail damage report confirmations for you so far this morning. So far I have been able to find confirmations of the hail reports in the following cities and towns of north Texas;

Grapevine, Texas

Keller, Texas

Southlake, Texas

Roanoke, Texas

Agnes, Texas

Springtown, Texas

I have been able to confirm the damaging hail reports in these towns through news reports and pictures that I found here, here and here. It looks like the heaviest hit area is going to be from Keller to Southlake and over to Grapevine with hailstone sizes making it up to nearly baseball size. I'm also picking up some chatter about damaging hail in the Watauga, Copell and Colleyville, TX areas but I haven't been able to confirm anything yet.

There is probably quite a bit of good golf ball size hail damage to a lot of cars all the way across the entire northern metroplex. Unfortunately, these areas get hit frequently enough that the folks just aren't that excited about reporting anything smaller than baseball hail.

That's it for now but we'll keep our eyes open and ours to the ground so we can bring you any more hail damage report confirmations as soon as we find them. Good luck!

Louisiana Hail Damage Report Confirmations

This hail damage confirmation report is a but of a mixed bag because, while it does contain some actual confirmations, it also is going to report about a lack of information at all concerning other hail reports. I was able to find some images of some of the hail that fell in Louisiana here. The towns with confirmed hail damage reports are;

Longville, Louisiana

Ragley, Louisiana

Unfortunately, I have not been able to turn up any kind of confirmation at all for the hail damage reports out of Eunice, Louisiana or Franklin, Louisiana. I have been able to find a lot of information about a storm that hit Franklin but it is all talking about heavy wind or tornado damage there is not any mention or photos of hail damage at all.

The towns that have been confirmed for damaging hail are pretty small and would hardly warrant a trip by themselves but if you are headed over to run the Texas hail damage north of Houston, it might be worth checking out.

That's all of the hail damage report confirmations I have for now but I will be posting some random information I have picked up through a few conversations and emails with several people out there running the roads. So check back soon for some more hail damage confirmations and info.

Texas Hail Damage Confirmations

After wading through all the pictures in the gallery here, I was able to get confirmations on the hail damage reports for the following Texas towns;

Conroe, TX - From the pictures, some of this hail was really bad.

Cleveland, TX

Humble, TX

Cut and Shoot, TX - I've been through several times but never stopped. I always wanted to be able to say I had worked there.

Crosby, TX

That's what I've been able to uncover so far about the Texas hail reports. I am developing some information about the Louisiana hail reports htat I'll be posting a little later.

Austin, Texas Hail Damage Report Follow -Up

This is a follow-up post to the Austin, Texas Hail Damage Report Confirmations post from the Thursday. It looks like the hail damage in and around the North side of Austin is both more wide spread and severe than it looked like at first. Here are a few videos of the actual hailstorm in Austin and right after it.

As you can see, this was a bad storm. I have talked to a couple of different guys that are on the ground in Austin and they tell me that there are a lot of hail damaged cars in the area and the body shops are getting packed in already. They tell me there is quite a bit of good, PDR repairable damage but there are also a lot of really hard hit vehicles that are going to be totaled.

That's what I know about the Austin, TX hail damage. I'll be making more posts today as I am able to confirm more of these other Texas and Louisiana hail damage reports.

Austin, Texas Hail Damage Report Confirmations

The hail damage reports from Austin, Texas and the areas to the northwest of the metro are totally legitimate. The pictures I have been looking at show a widespread hailstorm across the Northwest part of Austin with some heavily hail damaged cars. This storm came through at or near the evening rush hour and caught a ton of cars on the highway in mid commute. This is the list of confirmations I have verified so far;

NW Austin, TX
- At Spicewood near Bull Creek / Cypress Creek & Lakeline / 620 & El Saliba

Marble Falls, TX

Lago Vista, TX

I don't know if these are towns or subdivisions but I have hail damage confirmations for Cottonwood and Cedar Park also.

This is a pretty big storm guys. Some of this hail is very large too. It looks like there is going to be a lot of broken glass and paint but there should be a lot of good work also. Here are some picture resources you can check out here and here.

There have probably already been more reports since I started writing this post so I will be bringing you up-to-date hail damage report confirmations as soon as I make them.

Stillwater, OK and Omaha, NE Hail Damage Update

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you guys with a hail damage report update but I've been searching high and low for some decent information and, unfortunately, I'm not really coming up with much.

The information I've been finding make me stick by my assessment of the Omaha, Nebraska hail damage reports that I wrote Monday night. In short, a lot of small stuff with a few larger stones scattered around but nothing too serious. If you live close you might be able to pick up a little bit but I don't think there is going to be much out of that one.

I have nt been able to come up with any kind of reasonable confirmation to the Stillwater, Oklahoma hail report so, at this time I have to call it a bust unless something else comes up. Of course, I know all you hail chasers are only worried about what is happening right now, aren't you? You probably already forgot about those two reports because you're so concentrated on Texas right this minute.

Well, I am too. As soon as I have some good information for you on the Texas or Lousianna hail damage reports I'll be posting again.

Omaha, Nebraska Hail Damage Report

Yes, I saw the report come across the wire for the hail damage in Omaha, Nebraska from golfball hail and, yes, I have been trying to verify it through the local media websites. Here is what I have been able to find out so far.

There may have been some golf ball hail in these storms but, judging by the viewer submitted pictures I've seen, the hail from both storms was mostly marble to quarter size with a few larger stones mixed in. I have seen a few pics of 1.5" to, maybe, 2" hail stones but I had to luck at a bunch of pictures of small stuff to find them and it seems like the larger hail was in the Millard, Nebraska area. Here are the biggest stones I found pics of, here, here and here. Of course, it's early yet and there may be a lot more information coming out in the morning but for right now, I wouldn't drive more than a few hours to run on this one.

That's what I've got for now. If there is more hail damage information to be had in the morning I'll be bringing it to you. For now, I'm going to bed.
