Hundreds of high wind and falling ice storms wrecked residential and commercial properties across the Southwest on Sunday, May 15th, with Ardmore, Oklahoma, suffering heavy hail damage to roofing systems. The hail property damage left rooftops battle-scarred as 70 mph winds tore shingles and entire sections of commercial buildings. In support of impacted communities, RestoreMasters placed commercial roof repair crews on standby.

Storm tracking platforms posted real-time assessments as hailstorms and high winds threatened southeast Oklahoma. Residents were urged to take shelter, shield automobiles, and protect family pets.

“People and animals outdoors will be injured. Expect hail damage to roofs, siding, windows, and vehicles. Expect considerable tree damage. Wind damage is also likely to mobile homes, roofs, and outbuildings. Locations impacted include Ardmore, Durant, Madill, Tishomingo, Marietta, Lone Grove, Healdton, Wilson, Kingston, Dickson, Colbert, Caddo, Mannsville, Bokchito, Ravia, Achille, Thackerville, Bennington, Silo, and Milburn. Considerable hail threat, radar indicated max wind gust, 70 mph,” according to reports.

Real-time tracking alerts proved correct as Carter County and neighboring municipalities suffered extensive automobile and roof storm damage. A local wind and hailstorm damage map highlights the areas and size of falling ice that left buildings in dire need of roof leak repair. The color-coded imaging shows overlapping hailstorms in yellow and orange.

Yellow sections northeast of Ardmore and long stretches over Durant and Lake Texoma indicate hail up to 1.25 inches pelting regions. The light orange areas show ice up to 1.75 inches falling, and the dark orange demonstrates ice stones more than 2 inches in diameter, inflicting hail damage on roofs and windshields. The light gray swaths on the weather map show high winds stretching from Ardmore across the Texas border and another overlapping Durant.

The high wind and hail damage map produced by the National Weather Service paints an ominous portrait showing a concentration of severe weather events blanketing southern Oklahoma and Arkansas. National sources reported a total of three tornados, 139 high wind incidents, and 95 hailstorms on May 15, 2022. Wide-reaching sources indicate the following Oklahoma cities and towns in the Ardmore area suffered extensive wind gusts and hail property damage.

  • Ardmore: Hail the size of golf balls pounded outbuildings, automobiles, and rooftops late in the evening.
  • Calera: Winds exceeding 60 mph and hail damage reportedly caused a transformer to fail along Highway 75.
  • Connerville: Neighborhoods and business districts in Johnston County sustained roof damage from ice nearly the size of tennis balls pounding buildings.
  • Dickson: High winds dropped trees across the south side of town.
  • Durant: One-inch ice balls fell hard on Bryan County as storms hugged the Texas border. Wind gusts exceeding 60 mph downed trees and powerlines, leaving residents without electricity.   
  • Gene Autry: Quarter-sized ice peppered the small town and parts of the nearby Ardmore Municipal Airport.
  • Dougherty: Areas of Murray County experienced hard ice as large as ping pong balls cracking glass and causing roof hail damage.
  • Springer: The Carter Country community was hit by two hailfalls with ice as large as ping pong balls striking buildings.

Impacted Oklahoma property owners are urged to take measures to make emergency roof leak repairs before heavy rains cause further structural damage. RestoreMasters’ emergency commercial roof repair teams recently responded to Amarillo and the Texas Panhandle after high winds and hail-damaged rooftops on Sunday, May 1, 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. 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.

It's important to get a thorough roof inspection & property damage assessment following severe weather like this so that you can determine whether you have roof damage from hail or high winds. Circumstances do not always allow for immediate repair of roof leaks. In the meantime, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can cover the roof or affected area with a tarp or with a durable plastic shrink wrap material, until such a time when more permanent repairs can be made. We need to stop more moisture damage, so we can prevent mold growth.
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. Symptoms of storm damage problems do not always show up immediately. And deadlines from insurance companies could hinder you from filing a claim later.
