Thunderstorms and Hail in Commerce City, Oh My!

Severe weather happens in Commerce City. Tornadoes, thunderstorms, and snow all can cause structural damage to homes and businesses in the area. SERVPRO® of Commerce City responds to storm damage emergencies every year. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), hailstones are classified by comparing them to a known object. Usually, hailstorms drop a mix of different size hailstones, and only the really large ones pose any serious risk to people when they’re caught out in a storm. Here are some hailstone measurements from the NOAA:

  • Pea = 1/4 inch diameter
  • Mothball = 1/2 inch diameter
  • Penny = 3/4 inch diameter
  • Nickel = 7/8 inch
  • Quarter = 1 inch — hail quarter size or larger is considered severe
