Description :
Insurance data for hail damages to property during the period 1949-2006 were assessed to define the spatial and temporal distributions of losses in the United States. Assessment of the causes of catastrophes revealed that some were due just to hail, some due to a tornado and hail occurring together, and some from events with damages due to hail, tornadoes, and flooding. Each of these 3 types of hail cases were analyzed, and the amounts of loss due just to hail were identified in all cases, and then used in the final assessment of losses from hail.
