According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, hail causes an average of $1 billion damage to crops and property each year; some years have exceeded more than $2 billion in damage.
Anyone whose property is struck by hail needs to have professionals check to make sure there is damage. Not all hail storms cause damage, Brennan says. Pea-sized hail (1/4 of an inch) or marble-sized hail (1/2 inch) might not cause damage. Anything larger, say a dime or a quarter (3/4 to one inch) can cause serious damage. Golf ball-sized hail is 1 ¾ inch and softball-sized hail is 4 ½ inches according to NOAA.
