TEAYS VALLEY, W.Va. — A storm which rolled through West Virginia on Friday caused an isolated patch of hail in one part of Putnam County.

Quarter sized hail was heavy in a couple of subdivisions of Teays Valley, specifically along Mt. Vernon Road.

“There was a severe storm that rolled through an State Farm has received about 150 auto claims in the area,” said Kate Beadle, communications specialist for State Farm Insurance.

Beadles said while there were a few claims for home damage, the biggest issue was vehicles. Some State Farm policy holders had multiple vehicles damaged.

“Mostly sheet metal damage,” Beadle said. “We’re not seeing a lot of reports of broken glass, but mostly dents to the sheet metal from falling hail.”

Beadle said for State Farm customers they could contact their agent or call the claim number for quick action if they had damage. The hail damage would be covered under comprehensive insurance.

“If customers are unsure, they should check with their agent to see if they have comprehensive coverage and check with their agent to see what deductible will apply,” said Beadle.
