Spring continues its harsh treatment of Oklahomans as a severe weather event brought tornado alerts and pounded Atoka and Coalgate on Monday, April 11th, with large hailstones causing widespread roof damage. RestoreMasters is responding by putting emergency roofing specialists on alert to promptly fix the region’s hail property damage.

According to News 9, a tornado watch was issued for Haskell, Latimer, Le Flore, Pittsburg, Pushmataha, and Sequoyah counties through 11 pm on Monday, April 11th. From Monday through Wednesday, the strong winds and hail events were hyper-active across the Plains and into the Deep South. But on Monday, Coal and neighboring counties were battered by hail damage on roofs and automobiles as upwards of seven Oklahoma counties suffered ice stone impacts ranging from the size of a quarter to a large apple.

Local hail damage maps from this devastating storm show multiple weather patterns. One stretched as far east as West Valley Cemetery outside Wapanucka and paralleling Highway 3 as far west as Antlers. Another hailstorm ran north of Clarita through Coalgate and as far west as Daisy. The hardest-hit areas included neighborhoods south of Coalgate where orange and purple areas on weather maps indicate hail ranging from 2 to 3 inches. Maps also show orange hovering over Atoka and Antlers, indicating ice stones as large as golf balls resulted in hail damage on roofs.

Tornadoes, sometimes accompanied by hail can cause damage throughout the area, and storm reports by citizens cover social media.
A National Weather Service hailstorm damage map shows a string of fronts and intense wind events across Southeast Oklahoma and Central Arkansas. According to reports, the following areas sustain significant property damage as hail hammered buildings.

  • Arkoma: Reports from Industrial and Highway 112 to the south of Arkoma indicate hail upwards of 1.75 inches in diameter struck cars, trucks, and caused roof storm damage.
  • Antlers: Pushmataha County saw hail as large as golf balls thump roofs and property at approximately 8:15 pm.
  • Atoka: Property owners sustain hail roof damage after multiple strikes dumped ice stones ranging from 1-3 inches in diameter before dusk.
  • Braden: Ice stones the size of golf balls pelted residential and commercial buildings.
  • Centrahoma: This Coal County area sustained the heaviest hail roof damage as ice balls upwards of 3 inches in diameter made landfall. Impacted by ice as large as apples, emergency roof repair remains a necessity.
  • Coalgate: The County Seat experienced ice the size of tennis balls striking homes and commercial buildings.
  • Pocola: Hail as large as golf balls pounded the community at approximately 4:28 pm.

Cities and towns that experienced 1-inch hailstones included Poteau in Le Flore County, Red Oak in Latimer County, and Bromide in Johnston County. The state’s severe weather typically peaks from mid-April through mid-May, often causing property owners to reach out to commercial roof repair specialists to repair cracks, torn shingles, and secure their structures from rain damage. RestoreMasters recently responded to destructive hailstorms and high wind damage by alerting roofing and restoration contractors to effect repairs in Garfield County, Oklahoma.

Tornadoes, hail, and even strong winds can cause severe wind damage to roofing systems. Older roofs are susceptible to severe wind damage, by winds as low as 50 mph. 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 are a problem, they need to be addressed immediately. Experienced roofing contractors can either cover the affected area (or the entire roof) with a tarp or with a durable shrink wrap plastic membrane until long-term repairs can be made. Preventing water intrusion will help stop mold from growing.
If your property was anywhere within the storm damage map, it would be best to get your roof inspected, even if you think your roof was not damaged. Some storm damage symptoms take time to appear. And insurance company deadlines could hinder your ability to file a claim later.
