State Farm Names Top Ten States With Most Hail Losses

April 18, 2013

Wind and hail storms remain some of the most frequent and severe causes of property damage. This year the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) Research Center conducted the first-ever indoor hailstorm, in an effort to research building products and ways to educate consumers.

Damage caused by wind and hail cost State Farm and its policyholders more than $3.9 billion in 2012. The states with the most wind/hail losses include:

Texas—47,000 claims

Illinois—41,000 claims

New York—34,000 claims

Ohio—31,000 claims

Missouri—25,000 claims

Tennessee—24,000 claims

Indiana—23,000 claims

New Jersey—23,000 claims

Kentucky—22,000 claims

Colorado—16,000 claims

While hail storms most frequently impact the Great Plains and Midwest, every state in the nation is susceptible. See how your state compares to others when it comes to wind/hail and most common insurance claims.
