Hail, hail: the claims are rolling in

 It’s going to be a busy time this summer for restoration crews. Residents across Winterset and in nearby areas were awakened early Thursday morning to the sound of massive hailstones, which thundered through the area for as long as 15 minutes. Countless vehicles were damaged by golf-ball sized stones, while numerous roofs were damaged on homes, businesses and churches. Several million dollars in total damage – home and auto – is expected.
