DENTON (April 10, 2014) Recent storms that produced hail the size of softballs and pounded parts of North Texas caused about $300 million in damage, the Insurance Council of Texas estimates.
Five people were slightly hurt and hundreds of homes and businesses lost power in the April 3 storms in the Denton and Hunt County areas.
Most the damage occurred in Denton County.
The council reported that overall about 24,000 vehicles and 12,000 homes damaged.
Denton County's emergency management director, Jody Gonzalez, says about 40 percent of the damage is likely auto-related.
