Hail Facts

Hail is an intriguing phenomenon, and as your hail damage repair specialists, the technicians here at DMG|PDR know hail best. Sure, it’s a bit unexpected to see spheres of ice bolting down from the sky. But here in Texas, hail is a natural occurance that happens time and time again. It’s unfortunate, but in the Lone Star State, hail is a catastrophe you can count on occurring time and time again. So let’s take a moment to understand hail a bit further. Here are some facts surrounding this natural phenomenon:

HOW HAIL FORMS
Hail forms in storm clouds. When the weather is warm and the air is full of moisture, these clouds can accumulate. Within the cloud, droplets of water can form. These droplets will fall and rise with air updrafts. If a droplet reaches a cooler part of the cloud, it can freeze. This frozen sphere can repeatedly fall and rise, and it’ll grow in size with each pass. Once that sphere is too heavy, gravity will pull it through the updraft force and it will fall to the earth in the form of hail.

CUMULONIMBUS CLOUDS
Hail forms in cumulonimbus clouds, which are the largest clouds on earth. These super massive thunderstorm clouds are large enough to hold millions of gallons of water. Since these clouds are so big, and since they have a huge height, hail has plenty of space to rise, cool, fall, and recycle through and updraft.

HAIL RINGS
You can count the number of cycles that a hailstone has endured by cutting the hailstone in half. You’ll notice that there are rings of whitish ice and rings of clear ice. Each of these rings denotes either rising or falling through the stormcloud.

HAIL DAMAGE
Hail causes massive amounts of damage. It can injure or kill people. It can wipe out entire crops in a matter of minutes. It can damage buildings and break windows. It can damage vehicles. You can get insurance to protect your property from hail damage.

THE LARGEST HAILSTONE
The largest hailstone by diameter fell in Vivian, South Dakota in July of 2010. It measured 7.9 inches in diameter, and weighed in at a whopping 1.94 pounds.

TEXAS HAIL
Texas traditionally has the most recorded severe hail events within a given year. noted this statistic:

“Texas was the top state in hail loss claims from 2013 through 2015 with 394,572 hail loss claims.”
