A freak storm brought high winds, flooding, and widespread roof hail damage to Fort Stockton, TX, Monday, Oct. 10th, leaving businesses and municipal buildings in a sea of ice and in dire need of emergency repairs and water removal services. RestoreMasters dispatched emergency roof repair and flood response crews to Fort Stockton. Those in need of assistance can contact the RestoreMasters roof repair office in San Antonio, TX.

Fort Stockton residents were taken by surprise as the fast-moving storm descended on Pecos County residential neighborhoods and business districts just after 6 pm. People were forced to take refuge from the dangerous hailstones, wind gusts and find high ground to escape flash flooding.

“It was probably 30-40 minutes of rain, hail, wind, and chaos,” respiratory therapist Michael Garcia reportedly told CBS 7 news. “It was a mess.”

Decision-makers for businesses and municipal buildings are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection and water damage assessment. RestoreMasters provides comprehensive commercial roof inspection services that identify leaks, impacted support infrastructure, and help expedite an insurance claim.

A local hail damage map shows a large yellow storm stretching from 2023 to Highway 67, indicating ice up to 1.25 inches struck cars, trucks, and rooftops. The orange concentration directly over the business and municipal district where I-10, U.S. Highways 67, 285, and 385, and the Santa Fe Railroad converge was pounded by hail up to 2.5 inches in diameter. The gray regions on the storm damage map show that powerful gusts ripped through Fort Stockton, inflicting roof wind damage as well.

A National Weather Service high wind, tornado, and hailstorm damage map shows that Texas was the recipient of the country’s most destructive weather on Monday, Oct. 10th. Four hailstorms and one high wind incident were recorded, all located in Southeast Texas. Traditional news and social media reports highlight the wind and hail damage to roofing systems, as well as flooding across Fort Stockton.

  • Apache Elementary: Torrential downpours saw the water rise to the windows and flood the school.
  • McDonald Observatory: Hail the size of quarters pelted areas in nearby Jeff Davis County.
  • North Fort Stockton: Hail the size of golf balls battered building leaving them in need of emergency roof repair.
  • Pecos County Memorial Hospital: Water damage resulted from floods infiltrating patient rooms on the first floor.

Flash flooding prompted officials to cancel classes for the Fort Stockton Independent School District due to soaked flooring, carpets, and concerns that hazardous molds could grow quickly. The high winds reportedly exceeded 60 mph, leaving commercial buildings, churches, and others with substantial hail and roof wind damage.

RestoreMasters commercial roof inspection and emergency repair contractors responded to Canyon, TX, after high winds and hail damaged roofs on Tuesday, May 10, 2022.

Tornadoes, hail, and even strong winds can cause severe wind damage to roofing systems.

Some older roofs can be damaged by winds as low as 50 miles per hour.

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.

Getting a roof inspection & property damage assessment after severe weather like this is important for determining whether you need to address roof damage from hail or high winds.

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.

Rather than believing your roof is not damaged, if your property is anywhere in the area of the storm damage map, then you will want to get your roof inspected.

Many storm damage symptoms are not always evident immediately.

And insurance companies sometimes enforce deadlines for claims, so you need to get your claim filed quickly.
