Chickasha, Oklahoma, was again the target of hailstorms and high winds Monday, May 2nd, as ice, the size of baseballs, and wind gusts reaching 70 mph imposed their will. RestoreMasters alerted roof leak repair specialists to help secure wind and hail damage on roofs before another storm front arrives.

Reports indicate that Chickasha and the immediate area saw trained spotters witness 31 icefall instances, and the region has struggled under severe weather threats 52 times over the last 12 months. Doppler radar data indicates hail struck residential and business centers on five separate occasions in 2022.

A local hail damage map shows at least four major storms moving through the region on Monday, May 2nd. A cluster of overlapping fronts stretched from east of Apache to Tabler, as far south as Rush Springs and north above Minco. A lone hail system hovers above Slaughterville and Noble along Highway 77. The yellow sections show ice upwards of 1.25 inches pelting communities. The orange areas on the map denote hail up to 1.75 inches in diameter striking roofs and automobiles in towns including Ninnekah. The darker orange indicates ice as large as 2.5 inches inflicting hail property damage near Pocasset and Amber. The purple centered over northern Chickasha shows hail as large as a tennis ball pound roofs and automobiles.

The National Weather Service tornado, high wind, and hail damage map shows storm groupings across Oklahoma and Arkansas on Monday, May 2nd. National reporting accounted for 57 high wind incidents, eight confirmed tornados, and 51 hailstorm events across the country. Wide-ranging reports conclude the following cities and towns endured extensive hail damage to roofing systems.

  • Amber: Ice as large as limes was reported hitting buildings early evening.
  • Chickasha: Hailstones the size of baseballs battered roofs and exposed property around 7 pm as residents sheltered in place.
  • Cyril: Ping pong ball-sized hail beat down on residential and commercial rooftops.
  • Norman: Parts of Cleveland County experienced wind gusts over 60 mph with reports of roof sections being torn open.
  • Pocasset: Hail as large as a hen egg repeatedly cracked shingles and windshields.
  • Tuttle: Buildings along Highway 37 experienced a dusting of 1-inch ice pellets.
  • Verden: Ice the size of quarters blanked the business district along Highway 62.
  • Washington: Areas of McClain County sustained a brief blanketing of icefall at approximately 6:40 pm.

Oklahoma is in the midst of a peak hail season that is expected to persist deep into June. Property owners who require hail damage roof repair to secure leaks or replace torn sections are urged to reach out to a commercial roof repair contractor. Heavy rains can infiltrate commercial buildings and cause health hazards such as mold growth. RestoreMasters implemented emergency roof repair efforts in Amarillo and the Texas Panhandle after high winds and hail devastated businesses on Sunday, May 1, 2022.

Some roofing systems can be severely harmed by damage from heavy winds, tornadoes, or hail. 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.

Getting a roof inspection & property damage assessment after severe weather like this is important for determining whether you need to address roof damage from hail or high winds. 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. Symptoms of storm damage problems do not always show up immediately. And deadlines from insurance companies could hinder you from filing a claim later.
