A prolonged severe convective storm system that lasted from June 10 to June 19 resulted in more than 1,000 reports of hail and damaging winds across 25 different states as it passed over the central and southern U.S., according to a report from Karen Clark & Company (KCC). Overall, KCC estimates the insured losses from this outbreak will total close to $5.5 billion.
