Georgetown, TX Hail Storm Damage Claims

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.
