Hail is possible within two nautical miles of the parent storm in any thunderstorm, meaning hail can occur practically anywhere if the natural conditions permit. Hailstones can range from the size of a pea to the size of a grapefruit. When a hailstorm occurs, it can cause significant damage to homes, businesses, and other property, which may require you to file an insurance claim.
Hailstorms can cause dents in aluminum siding, shingles, and gutters, or even crack vinyl siding, asphalt roofs, and wood shakes. Hail can cause considerable damage to any soft metals such as metal roofs, mailboxes, air conditioner units, and screened enclosures. Essentially, anything exposed to the elements becomes vulnerable to damage during a hailstorm.
