Even though the June 1 hailstorm has long passed, residents are still feeling the effects as insurance claims soar.

"It was the worst hailstorm I can remember in 30 years," Jeff Blue said, owner of Reliance Insurance Agency in Goshen. "Insurance agents in Goshen are getting 5 to 8 claims a week."

Blue speculates most of the heavy damage has been handled, and claims being reported almost two months after the storm are homeowners playing it safe.

"A lot of the obvious damage got reported right away," he said. People often report an insurance claim after seeing a repair company working on neighbors’ roofs, he said.
