The thunderstorm that swept through the area in about an hour Sunday may take months to recover from as tree service companies worked to remove downed trees, roofing firms began repairs and homeowners filed insurance claims for damage.

By Monday afternoon, property owners had filed 6,000 insurance claims — most of them in Dallas County, where about a quarter of Oncor customers lost power.

The downed trees and other debris that caused many of the outages made up the bulk of the damage reports.

“Claims will continue to pour in for the next several days,” said Insurance Council of Texas spokesman Mark Hanna, who added that it is too soon to estimate the financial impact of the storm.
