The storm that struck Gillespie County last Thursday night, May 9, produced a wide range of damage due to the heavy rains, powerful winds and the destructive force of hail stones.
Local insurance agencies reported a great number of calls since Friday morning that were directly related to storm damage.
Greg Kaderli, manager of the property and liability department at Frantzen, Kaderli and Klier Insurance said his company fielded more than 180 just on Friday, with an additional 72 or so coming in on Monday.
In all, his company has received more than 400 inquiries and reports regarding damage to home, auto and commercial properties since the hail storm finished its local destruction.
With 35 years of experience in the insurance business, Kaderli said he knew he wouldn’t be able to sleep until he’d surveyed the damage, which he did Thursday night after the storm had cleared out.
