Insurance group: San Antonio hailstorm caused record damage

🕐 1 min read

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — An insurance industry group says a hailstorm that struck the San Antonio area last week proved to be the costliest in Texas history.

The Insurance Council of Texas says hailstones as big as grapefruit caused estimated insured losses to motor vehicles expected to reach $560 million. Damage to homes and businesses is expected to reach $800 million. Robert Crosby, executive director of Independent Insurance Agents of San Antonio, said uninsured losses were also expected to high.

The $1.36 billion damage estimate beats the $1.1 billion in damage caused by a May 5, 1995, hailstorm in Fort Worth.

No injuries were reported as hail fell over northern San Antonio and northwestern Bexar County the night of April 12.
