June 18, 2018 | Severe Hail Storm in Denver, Colorado
On 6/18/2018 in the late evening hours, a severe hail storm took place over much of Northern Colorado causing widespread damage from 1″-2″diameter hailstones. This damage contributed to substantial property losses, including severe damage to roof coverings and vehicles.
The Denver Metro area was struck by golf ball to softball sized hail . The National Weather Service in Boulder issued a tornado watch for most of the surrounding area. The storms produced high winds which drove the hail to severely impact residential dwellings and commercial buildings in the area. Hail storms are common in Denver, Colorado, where on a typical year there may be 13 days of hail.
Nationwide, hail insurance claims total $1 billion of damage to property and crops each year. Typically, 1″ hail or larger causes damage to roof coverings and exterior surfaces, but depending on the material and existing condition, smaller hail can also produce substantial damage. Hail is often part of other severe weather damage, including tornadoes, thunderstorms or lightning strikes.
