As tennis ball sized hail pelted Plano county and surrounding areas, a white blanket covered the ground with as much as 5 inches of hail. Several homeowners in Plano captured the hail on video, and many sent in pictures with hail as large as a fist.
While the full extent of the damage will be estimated in the next few weeks, it’s clear from the pictures that the storm left more than a few broken windows in its wake. Likely many homeowners will be finding damage to their roofs, chimneys, siding, fencing, and gutters.
