Insurance agencies all over town are setting up mobile claims operations in parking lots, hotel rooms, in their offices and at other locations.

Sue Hofmann’s State Farm Agency at 1362 Trinity Dr., Suite B in a news release indicates that while it’s too early to project the number of customers impacted by Monday’s hailstorm, State Farm has received more than 1,000 auto claims and more than 150 homeowner claims as of close of business Tuesday, and the claims continue to stream in.

Damage to vehicles includes broken windshields and body damage caused by hail and flying debris, State Farm said in the release. Home owners are reporting damage to their homes from the storm including roof damage, broken windows and damage to siding outside decks and fencing.

State Farm advises customers, when safe to do so, to make temporary repairs to prevent further damage. Save receipts when purchasing items such as tape and plywood and other supplies for making repairs, states the release, adding that personal safety is paramount..

State Farm has brought in catastrophic claim representatives who are handling customer claims.

Residents affected by the hailstorm should contact their insurance agencies for claim filing details.
