I doubt it, this part of town got heavy rains, but the hail bypassed us!

That storm system caused some serious damage across the northern half of San Antonio...I live just a few miles from Alamo Ranch and just got heavy rain and no hail. You may have the same luck. Call your realtor now.

No. I'm close by. We did not get any hail in the area. Just very heavy rain.

So, for those of you that FB, there is a GREAT weather guru site called South Texas Weather Update that you should check out and like for updates as they post them.

First, I have found them to be EXTREMELY reliable with info on upcoming weather events for SA and South Texas, and #2, what they are saying about the potential for serious flooding in this area starting this weekend and running thru Wed of next week warrants watching for sure. Even they say it is early, and they are keeping an eye on it, but SA looks to be in the middle of a forecast 8-9 inches of rain in a few days time.

Thanks Paka for this info. The more information we have the better prepared we should be. I hope that everyone has a "To Go Bag" prepared. Don't wait to get it together because a disaster doesn't give you an opportunity for a later date.

Dang, 'Nina! I haven't walked around my house yet. Hoping I don't have any damage. Roof, from what I can see, looks OK. I think I only got hit with the small ice balls, I didn't see any golf ball size hail. I called my insurance company about something else, then asked if I should have an inspection on my roof. I was told no because it would open up a claim, which could raise my rates even if there was no damage or actual claim for repair filed. So I may contact a Dave Ramsey ELP roofer to do an inspection.

Mom said her converse hood looked like a war zone. Broken windows on cars, homes, tree damages....she said her house sounded like it was going to explode.
