Hail season is here & it can be expensive if your car or house gets whalloped

Pea sized hail and heavy rain impact downtown Charles City on Monday evening March 6th, 2017

Des Moines, Iowa – Spring weather in Iowa often includes hailstorms and Iowans filed 27-hundred hail claims last year with State Farm Insurance. The average cost to repair hail-damaged cars was over four-thousand dollars while the average home roof repair topped 11-thousand dollars. State Farm spokeswoman Holly Anderson suggests Iowans check in with their insurance agent now, before the next storm strikes.

Iowans need to be vigilant when it comes to severe weather and Anderson suggests keeping an ear to the radio.

If your home’s roof or windows have been compromised by a storm, Anderson says you may need to act quickly.

In the State Farm report for 2016, Iowa ranks 25th in the nation for the most hail claims.
