A local hail damage map shows three major storm fronts in the Fort Smith area. The yellow sections identified on the map point to ice up to 1.25 inches pelting automobiles and rooftops.

Property owners are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection to support an insurance claim and prevent unnecessary water damage. When hailstones of this magnitude strike shingles, metal panels, rubber roofs, sealants, and gutters, moisture infiltrates soffits and the support infrastructure. Leveraging commercial roof inspection services provides property owners with a comprehensive roof hail damage report that can be used to fast-track an insurance claim.
The National Weather Service high wind and hailstorm damage map for Saturday, Oct. 15th, shows storm concentrations over Arizona, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. All told, 22 high wind incidents and 54 hail reports were reported over 24 hours. Wide-reaching resources highlighted the following hail property damage in Fort Smith, AR.
- Barling: The Sebastian County municipality sustained a steady pelting of quarter-sized hail during the early evening. Wind gusts topped 60 mph as airborne debris and snapped tree branches struck the siding of buildings.
- Fort Smith: Multiple reports were fielded in Sebastian County, with the largest hail exceeding the size of ping pong balls. High winds downed power lines and snapped tree branches.
- Greenbrier: Hail the size of half dollars pummeled roofing systems across Faulkner County.

Along with hail roof damage, thunderstorms doused the region with rain that can seep through cracks caused by the ice strikes. It’s essential to have a commercial roof inspection performed to identify any slow leaks and promptly file an insurance claim. Delays could result in an insurance corporation denying a storm roof damage claim later.
RestoreMasters dispatched roof repair specialists to Fort Smith after hailstorms and tornados wreaked property damage havoc on Monday, April 11, 2022.
Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage. Older roofs are susceptible to severe wind damage, by winds as low as 50 mph. The intensity of roof damage is determined by various factors: the velocity and impact of flying debris, the quality of the original installation, the building height and location in relation to other buildings, the angle and shape of the roof, and the material used on the roof.
