said James S., a Lake Jackson resident who also works in Brazoria County. Later he remarked “Northwood and West Columbia got hit pretty good and the weather service said Angleton got some 4 inch hail”.
This is no surprise if your reside almost anywhere in Brazoria County, Texas. Last month’s April showers brought high wind, hail, and what some were calling a 500-year rain.
While a Brazoria County hail storm is not unheard of, it has been several years since Brazoria has seen hail larger than a marble.
The picture above shows a hail path we mapped around Angleton and Lake Jackson from just a single day. The hail path shows just the center of the storm; the actual swath of the storm was much, much larger. What does this mean? If a property was anywhere near this path it got hit.
Even small hail can cause significant damage in large volumes or high winds. Ever seen a picture of hay needles or branches stuck into the side of a barn from tornado winds? Even small hail such as pea or marble- sized can do significant damage when thrown at 60-70 mph. The latest Brazoria County hail storms had very high winds.
Call, Examine, Act

REMEMBER: Take advantage of infrequent but powerful storms to upgrade your home by having the insurance company buy you a new roof whenever possible.
