Before crossing the northern border, fast-moving storms pounded the Texas Panhandle on Friday, April 22nd, inflicting hail property damage across the Oklahoma Panhandle. RestoreMasters dispatched emergency roof repair crews to help secure impacted buildings before heavy rains exacerbate conditions.

Local ABC 7 News affiliate predicted “Level 3 Enhanced Risk” weather during the early evening and worsening overnight in the Amarillo, Texas, area.

“These will be supercell thunderstorms (rotating storms) that will be capable of producing giant hail near the size of baseballs in the most robust storms. Winds gusting over 75 mph and a few tornadoes are also possible, so make sure you are staying weather aware as we head into the afternoon,” ABC 7 News reported during the run-up to the storm.

A local hailstorm damage map shows upwards of a dozen fast-moving storms heading in a northeasterly direction across Amarillo, the Texas Panhandle, crossing the state line into Oklahoma. The yellow area on the periphery of each front indicates hail up to 1.25 inches in diameter, peppering Texas counties including Carson, Potter, Hutchinson, Sherman, Gray, Wheeler, Randall, Armstrong, and Swisher. Oklahoma Panhandle counties of Cimarron, Texas, and Beaver also took icefall. The light orange portions of the storms suggest ice up to 1.75 inches in diameter, pelting neighborhoods and commercial districts. The darker orange shows hailstones up to 2.5 inches, inflicting significant property damage.

Wind & Hail Map Texas Panhandle & Western Oklahoma - April 22, 2022

High winds and hailstones cause damage throughout the area, and storm reports appear on social media.

The National Weather Service high winds and hailstorm damage map shows severe weather events stretching from the Texas Panhandle north across Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa. National reporting tallies for Friday, April 22nd, count nine tornados, 78 high-wind incidents, and 94 hailstorms devastating communities across the Midwest. Wide-reaching news and roof storm damage sightings state the following communities require emergency roof repair.

  • Amarillo: Arts and business districts sustained direct hits from ice stones as large as tennis balls. The Potter County community suffered at least seven poundings as multiple storms trekked across the municipality and high winds tore down signs.
  • Boys Ranch: The unincorporated community off Highway 385 sustained hail roof damage from ice the size of ping pong balls.
  • Canadian: Hemphill County neighborhoods sustained hits from golf ball-sized ice along the south side of the city.
  • Claude: Areas of the Armstrong County community saw ping pong ball-sized ice strike residential and commercial properties five consecutive times.
  • Groom: Two-inch ice hit the Carson County community off I-40.
  • Miami: Ice balls as large as hen eggs pelted automobiles and buildings at approximately 10:13 pm.
  • Lefors: Lime-sized hailstones fell along Route 273 from two fronts between 9:40 and 10 pm.
  • Nazareth: The Castro County municipality experienced strikes from ice the size of tennis balls.
  • Spearman: Two-inch ice balls pounded the county seat of Hansford County three times as the fast-moving storms moved across the Panhandle.
  • Wayside: Hail up to 1.75 inches in diameter made hard impacts as at least three storms dropped ice after 8 pm.

Oklahoma Panhandle cities and towns, including Hooker, Guymon, Elkhart, Goodwell, Keyes, and Stratford, were battered by hailstones ranging from 1 inch to some the size of baseballs. Property owners who suffered hail damage to roofing systems are urged to contact a roof repair contractor and secure any cracks or torn shingles. RestoreMasters commercial roof repair technicians responded to Central Mississippi Sunday, April 17, after hail strikes caused widespread damage.

Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage.

Some older roofs can sustain damage from only 50 mph winds.

Roof damage can be severe or mild, depending on various factors which include: materials used on the roof, impact of debris, building height and proximity to other buildings, age, angle and shape of the roof and type of roofing.

After a severe storm of hail or high winds, it is important to get your roof inspected, and have a property damage assessment report so that you can learn whether you have damage to your roofing system.

If roof leaks do occur, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can stop leaks with tarping or shrink wrapping, where affected areas (or the entire roof) are covered with a durable shrink-wrapped plastic membrane till permanent repairs can take place. That way you can prevent mold growth from water intrusion.

Get your roof inspected, even if you think there is no problem, especially if your property falls anywhere within the area of the hail and wind damage map.

Some storm damage problems do not produce symptoms right away.

And insurance company deadlines could hinder your ability to file a claim later.
