The U.S. continues to experience severe weather events of escalating magnitude and frequency. As a result, damaging winds, tornadoes, and hail storms are impacting a larger swath of the nation, in turn driving up personal and commercial property claims, among other things.

During the past 2 years, hail-related damage claims jumped 84 percent, based on findings released today from the latest National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) ForeCAST report.
