Devastating storms arrived in the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma area on Thursday, October 14th, bringing wind and hail to the region and causing significant damage during the early evening hours. To help property owners with the cleanup process, RestoreMasters has dispatched dedicated teams to the local area.

Reports of broken windows, hail the size of tennis balls, and downed power poles show the strength of this extremely hazardous storm. During the storm, Will Rogers Airport sustained damage to a hangar and sheet metal peeled off a shopping center in Del City. Additionally, roads were blocked by uprooted trees and falling limbs.

According to local weather maps, the path of the storm started near Minco and moved west, stretching as far across the I-40 Corridor as Henryetta. The greatest amount of damage was reported south of Choctaw, which the map indicates received hail of up to 1.25” in diameter (orange). However, the vast majority of areas that saw damage in the 1" to 1.25” range (yellow).

Large hail in this size can be incredibly damaging to cars, buildings, trees, and anything else within the path of the storm. That’s why RestoreMasters strongly advises Oklahoma commercial business owners to take the time to inspect roofs, siding, and other parts of their properties for damage. Failure to do so could lead to leaks or other big issues later on when winter arrives—such as leaks, mold growth, and deterioration of building materials.

RestoreMasters teams will continue to stay in the area for the next few weeks to assist with everything from basic inspections to repairs, remediation, and whatever else customers need to clean up and return to normal after this weather event.

According to the National Weather Service, hail and damaging winds were reported in the Oklahoma counties of:

  • Oklahoma — Extensive damage in and around the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area. Examples include damage to Will Rogers Airport and 70 MPH winds reported in Mustang. In Valley Brook, a roof was removed from a building and debris found over a hundred yards away.
  • Canadian — Wind-driven hail of up to 2 inches in diameter broke out windows in Mustang. Additional reports of hail from 1-inch to 1.7-inches was reported in Mustang, Valley Brook, and surrounding communities. 65 MPH winds were also recorded. Power poles snapped and blocking the roads in Midwest City.
  • Lincoln — Large hail measuring as large as 1.25” in Meeker.
  • Grady — Wind speeds reaching above 60 MPH in Tuttle.
  • McIntosh — As the storm system moved on, the town of Checotah saw 60 MPH or higher wind gusts.
  • Sequoyah — Further in the movement of the storm system, wind gusts caused large tree branches to break and block roads in Vian.

In addition to roof damage from hail, strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage. Some older roofs can be damaged by winds as low as 50 miles per hour. 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 do occur, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can stop leaks with tarping or shrink wrapping, where affected areas (or the entire roof) is covered with a durable shrink wrapped plastic membrane till permanent repairs can take place.
