Got hail that looked like smuboy's on the NE side of town, inside 410. Vehicles in garage, no damage there. one broken window pane, on north wall of house. Don't know about roof, yet. Our NextDoor Neighborhood forums full of people reporting damage, several with broken skylights, and some broken windows, and likely roof damage.


My mom's house nearby had something bizarre happen. The PVC water line that feeds an auxiliary hose bib on a side patio, apparently got broken by hail, where it comes up from under ground, and connects to a tee on the front hose bib. Water was gushing out from the broken pipe, but a very kind next door neighbor went over and put a temporary cap on the broken line, so just the hose bib is out of service.

I was sitting in my office (Medical Center) when I heard the hail noise on the roof, around 9 PM. Left work immediately. It was windy and pouring rain. The drive home on Loop 410 was a nightmare, bad visibility - especially when big trucks were passing and splashing large amount of water onto other cars. Traffic was going ~ 25 mph with hazard lights on...

Glad you made it home with no accident !
I was downtown around the same time. I entered 281 North to go home.
The visibility was poor & driving was slow.
I thought I was on 281 North but realized that I was now on IH 35 heading east.
When I started to hydroplane, I somehow managed to exit the freeway.


I exited on New Braunfels street & parked away from the street in a
empty lot.

I had nothing pending at home so I waited until I could see & drive.

Wife had garage sale two week ago. Forced to park in driveway until last night. Watching Adam on channel 12 weather, moved unsold "treasures" and parked both vehicles in garage. Marriage saved.

Live in '09, reports of skylights shattered next block. My flags were laying on ground this morning, broke off the top of flagpole. Pool full of leaves and oak tassels.

Waiting on sunlight to survey further damage.

You people that captured hail for insurance, THANKS! My wife would not let me go out.

About 12 minutes worth of hail, Hausman/1604 area. (78249) 1" to 2 1/2". Significant damage to house siding on the western facade, one broken window, and I suppose I'll find additional damage with my recently replaced roof.

Vehicle was garaged fortunately. Neighbor's vehicles have heavy body and glass damage.

I didn't see any real damage to my house (tin roof) so far. My cars were garaged and under the carport so there was no damage to any of them.

I definitely noticed though when the hail started falling down!

It's incredibly easy this morning to tell which cars are garaged & which cars are not.
