I probably make half my income due to hail storms and I have seen it get huge. That being said, if it is frozen all the way thru it hits like ball bearings and anything as big as a golf ball will cause 100s of thousands of dollars, if it hits a metro make it millions.

I've seen some of the aftermath of a hailstorm like that but never been through one.

We woke up last night to 60 plus mph straight wind, my estimate nothing official, for about 15 minutes straight, tree limbs down and a peach tree gone still hunting and picking up stuff that was scattered.

Yeah, don't underestimate straight line winds or micro bursts. I will up here in Van Zahnt County for at least another week on a wind storm

Last year we had a tornado come through with alot of hail. My 2019 ford 350 with aluminum body was severely dented. It took about 2 weeks to get time to take it in and get an estimate and roughly half of the dents were gone by then. Going on a year later i only have 2 or 3 dents out of hundreds left. I think the heat from the sun is expanding the aluminum enough to pop out the dents.

That will happen over time on a steel body also. But only with minor dents. My 2001 GMC looked like a golf ball after that storm I told about, was facing north, and took out the windshield, headlights, one side glass and put dents in the bedside deeper than you can put in with a pretty big sledge hammer. They had a big hail storm in Wichita years ago, that was absolutely the worst I ever seen. It pounded the tops down on cars almost to the seat backs. That has prolly been 25-30 years ago now, but it was nasty, and lasted for like an hour and a half. Being trapped in that would be sheer terror! The one I was in started small and just kept getting bigger, ended up as big as softballs, and lasted about an hour, but seemed like it would never quit!

The insurance adjusters will be out in force, I was north and west of you until about 4:30. My work truck dinged up fairly good. 6500 miles on it. We were in a safety meeting, probably 100 vehicles in the parking lot, not a one was spared I'm sure.

One of the few times that a weather statement came over the radio when I was driving in my new truck and so pulled over and stopped and watched the front pass.
1/2 hour later pulled into our destination and it looked like a Jamaican steel drum parking lot
can I say ouch for your truck 49er

Had one of the worst hail storms I’ve ever seen just south of me 3 miles. Pastures that had 6-10 inch grass look life a fire got them. Mature Evergreen trees with almost all the green gone. We get lots of hail here but that storm was apocalyptic. Friend sent me pics of his place 50 hours later and he still had hail on the ground and it hasn’t been exactly cool around here. A couple pics of what used to be pasture

Is it just me or is anyone else seeing more hail than usual this year? I've had three small hail storms come through the little town I live in in central ND this spring. It seems I remember in the past, we'd get maybe one hail storm per summer, and they usually only happened when it was +90°F.

Had a "0" rated Tornado running around in St. Louis County, heading north yesterday! Lot-o-rain with flooding and tree damage.

Don't ignore the potential damage to your roof, Tom. Would recommend you have someone do an inspection.

Dang Pawnee, can you imagine being caught out in that one?

Though not as large as all of the hail mentioned before in the comments but we had pea sized hail come down earlier today(not to mention a good sized tornado an hour south of us). It's still the largest hail I've seen.

I do apologize for the odd wording.
