DALLAS - Frustration is the word of the day for storm victims.

Luz Barron had four cars damaged. In addition to her not being able to go anywhere, her roof was damaged, and the siding on her house that was stripped.

With all the damage, she can't get an adjuster to come check it out.

"Nobody comes," she said. "Nobody."

This week's storm damage is now classified as "catastrophic."

The damage estimate for the hailstorm is between $1 and $2 billion, compared to the $1-billion price tag that came with April's tornado outbreak.

Alisson Ebert lives right across the street. She had holes in her roof that she tried to cover herself with tarps.

"I thought I had it all covered," Ebert said.

But, then another round of storms came through and now she has water damage.

"I just started hearing dripping and it started coming through the fans," she said. "There were holes in the roof I couldn't see."

Then, there are the piles of leaves and debris. Neighborhood after neighborhood has trash bags full of leaves.

"It's certainly an inconvenience," Julie Amundso said.

It could take months for roof and auto repairs to be complete.
