Two High Plains states lead the nation in hail damage, reports The Denver Post. Over the past three years, Colorado ranks second behind Texas for the number of insurance claims filed due to hail strikes on homes, property and cars.
The hailstorm that hammered Amarillo on May 28 resulted in $500 million in insured losses according to Claims Journal. The final figure was released recently by the Property Claim Services of the Insurance Services Office (ISO). The ISO is responsible for tallying catastrophic weather losses across the country.
