Thunderstorms rolled through Amarillo on Friday afternoon, bringing heavy rains, hail, and lightning.

The storm rolled in just before 4pm in Amarillo, with hail slamming several neighborhoods. The storm caused some power outages, according to Xcel Energy’s outage map, and at least one fire south of Amarillo. Several front yards were covered with hail in a way reminiscent of snow. There were also multiple neighborhoods with trees showing fewer leaves than when the storm began thanks to the rain and hail.

Emergency vehicles could be seen responding to events during the storm.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.

Georgetown Residents Now’s The Time to Submit Your Hail Damage Claim!

Early Thursday morning the residents of Georgetown woke up and began to assess the damage from what will likely be one of the most costly hail storms in Georgetown’s history.

Hail from egg-sized to the size of tennis balls pummeled the city, especially the NW portions close to Serenada and Sun City. It was even confirmed by The National Weather Service that baseball-sized hail was produced by the storm. That’s hail that reaches 2.75 inches in diameter.

The baseball-sized hail was produced by an 81 mph updraft wind, and fell into roofs and cars at estimated speeds of 50-60 miles per hour. To produce updraft winds inside of a thunderstorm that strong, you need tremendous instability in the atmosphere, and strong wind shear to keep the updraft and the downdraft in the thunderstorm separate and self-sustaining.

Storms rolled through the Brazos Valley Wednesday, bringing strong winds and up to golf-ball-sized hail.

BRAZOS COUNTY, Texas — People living in the Brazos Valley were hit with two rounds of severe weather Wednesday that brought hail, damaging winds, and even a brief tornado warning.

The storms moved through Central Texas first, hitting the Waco and Temple area before pushing through the Brazos Valley. People reported seeing up to golf ball-sized hail in North Bryan. Here at the KAGS station near downtown Bryan, the hail was about ping-pong ball-sized.

This resulted in reports of downed trees and power lines. Some people living in Brazos County and surrounding counties reported power outages and damage to their property; including the collapsing of Dixie Chicken’s roof off of Northgate.

Don’t let your insurer underpay or delay your
Insurance Claim Settlement


Business owners trust the licensed public adjusting firm Insurance Claim Recovery Support, LLC (ICRS).

We are one of the country’s oldest and leading Commercial and Multifamily insurance claim specialists with over $100M in claims settled fairly and promptly.

We exclusively represent the interests of and advocate on behalf of policyholders and we’re not attorneys or contractors.

Policies typically require you to file your insurance claim promptly.

The settlement process can be taxing.

Interpretation of policy language, settlement negotiations and meeting the burden of proving what you are rightfully owed can frustrate you to a point where you may even think about using your insurance company.

Almost everyone we’ve ever helped felt the same frustration you do and very often we help policyholders successfully avoid unnecessary litigation.

If you are dealing with a large commercial or multifamily property damage insurance claim, I urge you to consider the possibility of protecting your interests, being proactive and do not wait or waste your valuable time dealing with an insurance claim that you anticipate may be delayed or underpaid.

100% of the claims we represent have resulted in faster and/or higher settlements than the insurer’s original offer and we work on contingency, no recovery no fee.

Everybody deserves a fair settlement, but the expertise required to successfully navigate the claim process is best left to experts who know how to win the repair vs. replace disputes associated with hail insurance claims.

Insurance companies are for-profit businesses. Minimizing your claim increases their profits. Why allow your carrier’s hired adjuster to document and settle your claim when they don’t represent your interests?

Whatever stage your insurance claim is in, we solve insurance claim problems. I look forward to answering any insurance claim questions you may have.
