Hail protection, preparation, response and recovery



According to data from the U.S. weather service, hail storms cause approximately $1 billion of crop and property damage each year. Hail season typically runs from spring through early fall when thunderstorms are more likely to occur. Hail storms are most common in the areas where Colorado, Nebraska and Wyoming meet. These areas are called “Hail Alley.” Crop damage due to hail storms can run in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

Hail stones can range in size from pea-sized curiosities to as large as softballs. Roofs, roof-mounted equipment, vehicles and glass bear the brunt of the most serious damage.
