COLLIN COUNTY, Texas — Monday marked a busy day of clean-up for Collin County residents after an overnight hail storm.
The Insurance Council of Texas estimates the hail caused $300-$400 million in damage.
“It sounded like there was a huge herd of horses running on our roof,” Allen homeowner Tiffany Woodward said. “Growing up, we had a lot of hail, but it was never like this.”
Roofers lined Woodward’s residential street in Allen Monday morning, after the entire block saw varying degrees of hail damage.
“We hid out in one of the closets downstairs,” said Stephanie Russakov, who lives a few doors down from Woodward. In addition to the roof, the fencing around Russakov’s home will need serious repair.
“It was a scary moment, I’m not going to lie,” Russakov said.
Many roofing companies tell us their phones have been ringing off the hook after the overnight storm. Officials with Plano Roofing Company tell us they are “completely booked” with appointments over the next two to three days.
