The damage from Monday’s hailstorm was severe and widespread in the Denver metro area, breaking out windows at a university, flooding sections of a hospital and shattering windshields and pummeling roofs on scores of cars. But was the storm destructive enough to make it on to the top 10 list of Colorado’s most damaging hailstorms? “We’re still in a ‘wait and see’ mode,” said Carole Walker, executive director of the Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association, which tallies the financial cost of storms and natural disasters in Colorado. “But any time we start using sports terms — gold ball, tennis ball or baseball sized — we’re concerned that it’s a catastrophic event.”
