High winds, heavy rains, and hailstones the size of hen eggs caused widespread property and roof damage in Leesburg, VA, on Thursday, June 2nd. In the aftermath of storm cells that drenched commercial properties during the hail and roof wind damage, emergency roofing repair crews are needed to secure buildings before business owners sustain further losses. RestoreMasters dispatched every available roofing and restoration contractor to implement emergency roof leak repair measures.

First-hand videos show driving winds pushing at trees and lashing automobiles and buildings with hard ice. Weather reports from WTOP News painted a picture of Loudon County residents suffering extensive wind and hail damage to roofing systems.

“Montgomery and Loudoun counties perhaps bore the brunt of Thursday’s severe weather: Radar-estimated rainfall rates of up to 2 inches per hour led to flash flooding on roadways near Bethesda. Hail over an inch in diameter fell around Leesburg, where crews were still working to unblock parts of Va. Route 7 during the evening commute,” WTOP News reported. “PEPCO was aware of 2,100 customers under outages in Montgomery County as of 7 p.m. Thursday. Across the Potomac, Virginia’s Dominion Energy reported nearly 1,700 homes and businesses without power in Loudoun County, with 1,100 of its Fairfax County customers also in the dark.”

A local wind and hail damage map indicates a centralized storm cell stretched from Southeast of Paeonian Springs near the Route 7 and Route 9 split to the edge of North Potomac in Maryland. The wide yellow areas highlighted on the storm damage map indicate hail upwards of 1.25 inches striking the region. The darker orange swaths point to hailstones upwards of 1.75 inches smashing glass and cracking rooftops. The light gray areas show fierce winds able to snap tree limbs and tear shingles, leaving commercial property owners in dire need of roof leak repair.

The National Weather Service wind and hailstorm damage map shows a heavy cluster of high-wind incidents barreling through Northern Virginia and into Maryland. All told, the country sustained 138 severe wind events and 15 hailstorms on Thursday, June 2nd. Wide-reaching reports highlight the fact Leesburg, VA, and the surrounding area were slapped with the worst wind and hail roof damage.

  • Fairfax: Tree falls were reported at the intersection of Va-123, Ox Road, and Burke Centre Parkway.
  • Pamplin: A tree was leveled on Five Forks Road to the east of Pamplin.
  • Hampden Sydney: Intense winds dropped a tree near 2400 Block of Cumberland Road.
  • Hughesville: A fallen tree was reported near 3000 Block of Colonial Highway.
  • Leesburg: The Loudon County seat was blanketed by hard ice strikes the size of hen eggs that lasted approximately eight minutes. High winds downed multiple trees near the Route 7 and Dulles Greenway intersection, as well as Dry Mill Road.
  • Prospect: The Prince Edward County community saw upwards of 1,000 power outages due to driving wind damage.
  • Waterford: Trees were toppled near the Route 7 and Route 9 intersection just west of Leesburg. Snapped tree limbs downed power lines across northern Loudon County.

Although national weather reports did not effectively measure wind velocity on Thursday, June 2nd, limbs typically break at approximately 40 mph, and substantially greater force is needed to down a tree. RestoreMasters recently deployed emergency roofing teams to Caldwell County, NC, on May 26, 2022, to execute roof repair following hail and windstorms.

Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage. Winds as low as 50 mph can cause some older roofs to be damaged. The severity of roof damage depends on several factors including: type and age of roofing materials, presence of flying debris, roof shape and angle, building height and proximity to adjacent structures and the quality of original roof installation.

Following severe weather like this, it's important to get a thorough roof inspection & property damage assessment to determine whether or not you have roof damage from hail or wind. 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.
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 insurance companies sometimes enforce deadlines for claims, so you need to get your claim filed quickly.
