Throughout Tuesday night, May 31st, the residents of Wichita & Central Kansas heard tornado warnings, there were a few that touched down in areas, but did not cause any significant damage. What did develop were torrential rains, flooding, and softball size hail stones.

Hail up to 2” – 3” in diameter (golf ball size to softball size) fell, damaging homes and commercial buildings. Property owners were left not only with cracked, broken, dented roof tiles, siding, and gutters, but also water damage due to the wind-driven heavy rains. This kind of damage can cause mold, mildew, and degradation of wood within the structures of buildings.

By late Tuesday night, there were reports of 2” to 4” of rain. It fell so hard that the storm drains could not handle the flow and local flooding occurred. At 10 pm, there were stalled vehicles stranded in street flooding and up to 2000 without power.

RestoreMasters knows that it is imperative for immediate emergency intervention, as soon as possible after a storm such as this. A team was sent to aid property owners with clean-up, and emergency roof covering with tarp or shrink wrap, in order to prevent further water damage from future rain storms.

The Wichita, KS area as indicated on the local hail map, had patches of varied sizes of hail, from softball-sized (purple) to golf ball-sized (orange). One inch (yellow) to one and three-quarter-inch sized (orange) hail dropped in patches at varied times throughout the storm.

According to NOAA National Weather Service Hail Map, varied-sized hail pelted Wichita and surrounding areas.

  • Wichita: brief tornadoes touched down, very large hail.
  • Dexter: storm tracker saw a brief spin-up that lasted for a few seconds, touchdown in open field.
  • Winfield: Golf ball-sized hail.
  • Emporia: Quarter-sized hail.
  • Belle Plaine: Tennis ball-sized hail.

RestoreMasters has been working to mitigate the damage caused by heavy rains and exacerbated by damage from large hail. When water seeps into buildings through roof shingle damage or siding damage, warmth from outside or from heating inside will encourage the growth of mold. As moisture increases, so does mold growth. When conditions are right, mold can begin growing within 24 to 48 hours, it actually shows itself up to about 12 days from start. Steps can be taken to deal with mold damage, and RestoreMasters provides a guide for this. They are also available to assist property owners in every aspect of clean-up to full restoration.

Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage. Some older roofs can sustain damage from only 50 mph winds. 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.

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 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 can require you to get a claim in before their deadline.
