Hail and Thunderstorms Predicted in Weather Forecast

Weather forecasters are calling for severe thunderstorms and even hail across the region tomorrow. You may not immediately think of hail as a danger to your car or home, but larger hailstones can shred roof coverings, scar automotive finishes and lead to water damage. Research from the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS) indicates that more than 75 percent of U.S. cities will experience at least one hailstorm each year.

If weather forecasters are correct about tomorrows storm system then it is important to move inside immediately and stay there. Also, If you’re in a car, pull off the road preferably under a bridge or highway overpass and wait for the storm to pass. It may also be a good idea too:

  • Park vehicles in a garage or under a carport.
  • Keep away from skylights, doors and windows in case hail shatters the glass.
  • Close your drapes, blinds or window shades to prevent wind from blowing broken glass inside.
