Plano hailstorm victims prepare for more severe weather

It was just one week ago a hailstorm pounded Plano with golf-ball-size hail and left apartments and dozens of cars with broken out windows. The storm victims were bracing for the worst as another line of storms moved through Wednesday.

The Westside Apartments in Plano was one of the hardest hit locations last Wednesday with more than 400 windows busted.

Residents, like James Brady, not only had multiple windows in his unit shattered by hail, but his leased car - which was not under a car port - took the full brunt of the storm. On Wednesday afternoon, he took matters into his own hands with cardboard boxes and duct tape.

“I don’t want to have to go through the whole process again,” Brady said.

Other homes in the area also showed signs of damage with busted skylights and roof damage. On some streets, roofing contractor signs are placed outside of every home.

State Farm asks their clients to make sure damage is well documented after every storm.  They say they understand some people may have more than one claim after Wednesday’s round of storms hits.
