Recent Hail Storm in Dallas

April 3, 2014 Severe Hail Storm in Dallas

The Dallas-Fort Worth area was pummeled with hail during the April 3, 2014 hail storm. Softball size hail (4.25″) was recorded in Denton, with 1″ to 3.5″ hail throughout Denton County. Several other counties recorded 1″ to 2″ hail, including Bowie, Collin, Cooke, Delta, Erath, Hood, Hunt, Parker, Tarrant, and Wise. The hail storm was followed a short time later by tornado warnings and wind gusts up to 80 mph.

Texas ranked 1st 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.
