Recent Hail Storm in Norman

March 30, 2013 Severe Hail Storms in Norman, OK

The early morning hail storm on March 30, 2013 produced 1″ to 2″ hail, pounding roofs and cars in Norman. The Del Rancho drive-in roof was pummeled with golf ball size hailstones. Windshields were smashed and cars dented at David Stanley Chevrolet. Noble, OK was also hit with hail, with sizes ranging between 1.5″ to 1.75″. KOCO News reported that damage from the hail storm could total millions.

Oklahoma ranked fifth for major hail events in 2012, according to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). 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 damage. Hail is often part of other severe weather damage, including tornadoes, thunderstorms or lightning strikes.
