From Denton to Dallas and Frisco to Farmersville, the damage is widespread

People are still cleaning up the aftermath of massive hail that fell across parts of North Texas.

From Denton to Dallas and Frisco to Farmersville, the damage is widespread. The shredded leaves are a telltale sign of where large hail occurred.

“It was very scary. Very scary. You could just hear things breaking all over the place and that’s the second time in my life I’ve ever been in a hail storm that big,” said Montie Upchurch, whose home was damaged by hail.

Neighbors at Rocky Point Mobile Home Park in Flower Mound are dealing with dented cars, broken windshields, and broken windows on their homes. They believe the hail was as big as tennis balls.

“It came up and hit the window – and my nose was about this far from the window,” said Gary Bitsko, holding his hand right up to his nose. “That’s when I shut the door.”

He had two windows damaged in the storm. His neighbor Upchurch also had three windows smashed by the stones.

Upchurch said he worries about how families will cover the costs of the widespread damage.
