DALLAS - Insurance catastrophe teams are already in Dallas looking at the damage from Wednesday's storms, and experts say hail damage can be tricky.

First, you may not see the damage right away. Just because you didn't lose shingles or have a leak, doesn't mean you don't have a problem.

Call an adjuster. Most people don't know this, but roofers don't need to be licensed in Texas, so choose carefully.

As for your car damage, those small dent repair places can be a great, less-expensive option. But if you got hit by a big chunk, call your insurance company.

Even then, you may have to wait awhile to get help.

That's because if you can drive your car, you may be sent home to free up lines for people with worse damage.
