Large Hail Falls Across North Texas
COPPELL – June 7, 2018
Severe storm bringing damaging winds and baseball-sized hail moved through North Texas early Wednesday, CBSDFW reports.
The storm passed through Coppell, Carrollton, and Arlington. Huge hail and damaging winds are the main threats with any severe storm. Some of the largest hail that fell was estimated as being baseball-size and smashed through skylights, windshields, solar panels and dented roofs.
Early estimates say 20,000 homes or businesses were damaged and 25,000 cars or trucks. The total loss is estimated at approximately $425 million in damages.
Arlington officials said there's a lot of storm debris, but street sweepers have been able to deal with some of it. The truly serious damage wasn't as widespread as it was in other areas of North Texas.
Thankfully, no injuries have been reported so far due to the storm.
