Violent hail storms have undeniably been on the increase in both intensity and frequency around the globe as a direct result of the approaching Planet X, aka Nibiru.

 

"We warned at the start of ZetaTalk, in 1995, that unpredictable weather extremes would occur and increase on a lineal basis up until the pole shift. Where this occurred steadily, it has only recently become undeniable. ZetaTalk, and only ZetaTalk, warned of these weather changes, at that early date." ZetaTalk: Weather Extremes

 

Where many of these extreme weather events have been reported on ZetaTalk and the ECAPS ning, an astonishing escalation of insurance claims for hail and wind damage across North America since 2008 further corroborates the Zetas' predictions.

 

Hail Damage Doubles in 2011

Hail-related damage claims for auto insurance more than doubled in 2011 compared to the average filed between 2008 and 2010.

By 2012, hail damage had jumped 84 percent from 2010 and constituted the predominant insurance claim across the U.S.

Hail Claims Rise 84% in 2012

"Insurance claims from hail damage have increased an astounding 84 percent since 2010, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau.  While homeowners filed the greatest number of claims, auto policy claims are rising at the fastest rate, more than six times greater in 2012 than in 2010."

In 2013, insurance companies started raising policy premiums, increasing deductibles and even incorporating exclusions for damages caused by hail and wind.

 

Hail Damage Sends Kansas Insurance Premiums 20% Higher (April 2013)

Homeowners insurance companies in Kansas filed last year for rate increases that averaged 14.6 percent, with some companies filing for more than 20 percent.  And that came on top of an average increase of 6 percent the year before.

The companies attribute the increase largely to the high amount of hail, wind and tornado damage claims in recent years that are affecting the rates.

“There has been a tremendous amount of wind and hail damage,” said Steve Witmer, spokesman for American Family Insurance.

For three of the past four years, Farmers Insurance set new records for claims, said company spokesman Luis Sahagun. Losses in 2011 were an 82 percent jump over the previous worst year.

 

New Deductible for Hail, Wind Damage in Ohio (July 2013)

Insurers, hit with a rapidly growing number of claims caused by storms over the past five years, are starting to ask homeowners to pay a separate deductible for wind and hail damage that is higher than they are used to paying for claims.

“Over the last five years, catastrophic wind and hail storms have led to historic numbers of claims to help people repair damage to their homes. The frequency and severity of these storms have made it necessary for us to make changes to our homeowners’ deductible.”

 

New Hail And Wind Exclusion for Insurance Coverage (April 2013)

The "Cosmetic Damage Exclusion" for hail and wind damage, excludes payments for damage to exterior surfaces including walls, roofs, doors and windows from hail or wind if the storm impacts the appearance but not the function of these elements.

The American Association of Insurance Services (AAIS), an organization that develops policy forms used by more than 700 property and casualty insurance companies, created this new exclusion for insurance companies that have been hit hard by storm losses over the past decade.

Since 2008, U.S. insurers have paid 4.5 million hail claims totaling $32.1 billion, according to Verisk Underwriting.

"Is this as bad as it will get, prior to the pole shift when hurricane force winds will sweep the Earth and every region of the globe will emerge with a new climate and geography? Has the lineal increase we predicted in 1995 reached its climax? We are not here with good tidings, nor were we here with good tidings in 1995."  ZetaTalk

Three Feet of Hail Cripples Mexico City (Aug 17)

A hailstorm of mammoth proportions hammered sections of Mexico City Sunday. Several feet of hail piled up, making some city roads impassable.

Roads such as the North Loop were flooded by hail and flooding, so municipal and Federal District workers labored for hours to clear them, Notimex reported.

Mexico news organization Azteca Noticias called it a “historical hailstorm”.

Pictures from Twitter are remarkable; parts of the  low latitude city appear transformed into a winter wonderland in the dog days of August.

"Hail Sales" Booming for Hail-Damaged Automobiles (Jun 12)

Thousands of drivers in Nebraska, Colorado, and Iowa are lining up to buy cars with shattered windshields and badly damaged exteriors.

A series of brutal hail storms hit the Midwest and mountain states this spring, and among the damages were thousands of new cars sitting on auto dealer lots. Lately, many of the affected dealers have been trying to get buyers to take these vehicles off their hands with “Hail Sales,” in which damaged cars are being sold at steep discounts—sometimes as much as 66% off the sticker price.

Baseball-sized hail destroyed over 4,000 vehicles at a new car dealership in Blair, Nebraska in early June, with losses estimated at over $160 million.

Sid Dillon Chevrolet and Woodhouse Ford in Blair, Nebraska, and Woodhouse Chevrolet in Missouri Valley, Iowa, have all been hosting such sales. Woodhouse’s marketing team said that more than 150 customers were waiting to speak with dealer sales staffers over the weekend, and the Woodhouse website warns, “Due to the overwhelming response to the Hail Event, all sales representatives will not be able to timely return phone messages of ‘contact us’ messages for the next 2-3 weeks.”

Dozens of auto dealerships in the Denver-Colorado Springs corridor hosted hail sales leading into Memorial Day weekend, with deals up to 25% off MSRP on new cars, and up to 50% off some used cars. Phil Long, with locations in Denver and Colorado Springs, is still advertising “Hail Savings” of as much as 66% off MSRP.

Woman Dies After Being Buried Under Several Feet of Hail in El Paso Texas (Apr 21)

A woman from Arroyo in Northeast El Paso died after being swept away by a river of hail. 

She was buried under several feet of hail that was waist deep in spots.

The water rescue team searched very large pools of icy hail using long metal rods to poke through the slush.

Minutes after the rescue team pulled the woman's half naked body from the icy river, emergency personnel performed CPR all the way to University Medical Center, but the woman was later pronounced dead.

Rare Storm Dumps 3ft of Hail on East African Nation of Eritrea (Mar 14)

(Courtesy of Andrey Eroshin)
The nation, usually dry and only experiencing the odd shower at this time of year, had the heaviest rainfall ever recorded this week.

The hail storm, which dropped 1 metre (3ft) of ice, lasted 90 minutes and left much of the city completely blocked.

Government-run newspaper Hadas Eritrea reported that streets of the capital were impassable and that the storm had shocked residents who were not prepared for the extent of hail.

Eritrea, situated just south of the Sudan and on the Horn of Africa has an average yearly rainfall of just 24 inches and rare hail storms.

The storm is by far the heaviest ever recorded in the capital, according to officials.

West Denver Buried in 2 Feet of Hail (Sept 9)
Neighborhoods in the west-metro area were hammered Sept 9 by a storm that brought high winds and heavy hail.

The hardest hit by the hail storm appeared to be an area near 26th Place in Wheatridge. It brought along a sense of winter, even as summer still hangs on.

"I've never seen anything like this," Terry Cohen said. "It's nuts."

"The sound of it was just truly amazing, deafening," Doug Junda said.

Wind gusts glued leaves to siding. The hail was described as blinding.

"It was coming down so hard, you couldn't see out across the backyard at any one time," Junda said.

"I could have sworn it was a winter wonderland in summer," Jacob Cohen said.

"It's a couple feet deep".

Snowplows and front-end loaders were helping with the cleanup by hauling away the hail.

Freak hail storm Brings winter scenes to Falmouth

BBC News 

 

Falmouth residents found their garages flooded after the hail turned to a torrent of water

A freak hail storm has left part of Falmouth in Cornwall looking like a winter's scene.

PE teacher Tommy Matthews, 52, of The Gluyas arrived home from work to find an inch of hail covering the street.

Neighbours' garages were flooded and manholes burst as the hail turned into a stream of water.

The hail storm, which left cars sliding on roads, occurred at about 17:00 BST after a Met Office warning of heavy rain in the South West overnight.

'Sky opened up'

"I was walking up the street and it suddenly all went nuts," said Mr Matthews.

"My drive is still covered in hail.

"It went on for about 20 minutes. Just when I thought it was over, it came down harder and harder."

He said the hail was confined to within about a quarter of a mile radius of his home.

Patricia Minson, who lives nearby at Boslowick Road, said: "There was a thunder clap and the sky opened up.

"There were about 10 cars stuck on the hill.

"I've never seen anything like this."

Hail Decimates Montana Wheat Harvest (August 2013)

John Decock was days away from harvest when hail came in an angry white veil and pounded his wheat and oats into the mud.

“I’d just come in for supper and I could see it coming from the highway,” Decock said. “It was a like white wall. There was a plunk-plunk-plunk on the roof and then it was a roar.”

The wind blew so hard from the northwest that the icy pebbles bounced horizontally off Decock’s home, rolled down the roof and piled a foot deep in his doorway. It ripped up his wife’s rhubarb and tossed cottonwood branches 100 yards southeast of the trunk. In the end, the very sky Decock turned to for drought relief in May was by August his undoing.

“Well there’s no harvest this year,” Decock said recently as he harrowed the field that before Aug. It looked like it would deliver that once-a-year paycheck that comes with harvest. Instead, Decock will be turning to crop insurance for partial coverage of his losses.

Montana has had an unusually long hail season, according to the National Weather Service. Consequently, crop damage claims for the year are not only nearly double what they were in 2012, but also the third highest in 50 years with time left for more claims still to be filed, according to the state Department of Agriculture.

The reasons for the prolonged season are weather conditions normally over by mid-July that this year stretched into August. In a normal year, the worst of Montana’s hail falls from late June through mid-July, said Tom Frieders, National Weather Service warning coordination meteorologist in Billings.

Frieders is the region’s severe weather guy and he’s had a busy year so far. Montana has had 263 severe hail storms so far this year, compared to 115 for all of 2012. Severe hail is anything larger than an inch in diameter. The state has also been hit by nine tornadoes and 225 severe wind storms, including the violent July 8 storm that damaged the grain silos at United Grain in Pompeys Pillar.

The hail storms are created when moist air traveling north to Montana from the Gulf of Mexico collides with Pacific weather moving across the state west to east. Weather Service maps of severe weather show a broad swath of hail storms plotted from Texas into Eastern Montana. The Gulf moisture usually stays east of the Rocky Mountains.

In a typical weather year, the moisture traveling north from the Gulf begins to leave the area by mid-July when it’s replaced by hot, dry weather. This year the Gulf moisture stuck around.

“What we had was actually a persistent pattern that began in June and extended into early August,” Frieders said. “We had consistent southeasterly flow feeding that Gulf of Mexico moisture into our area.”

Farmers submitted 852 claims to the Montana Hail Insurance Program through Tuesday, nearly double the claims submitted in 2012.

Not all the claims filed are for major crop loss, but there has been an increase this year in major claims for hail. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Risk Management Agency oversees the nation’s Federal Crop Insurance Corp.

RMA literally has a hand in every farm policy in the United States. Private sector insurance companies sell and service policies, but RMA supports it all and requires advance notice if a claim exceeds $500,000.

This year, there are 12 Montana claims for hail-related losses in excess of $500,000, according to RMA. There were none in 2012.

At Decock’s farm, the “white combine” has taken everything, which has rarely occurred in the past because the fields are spread over more than 4 miles. It takes an unusual storm to dump hail over that wide of a swath, but the early August storm did just that, rolling over the Crazy Mountains and chewing up these mile-high plains.

The busted plant stems all tilt to the southeast at a 35-degree-angle like a sundial stuck at 6 o’clock.

“It even beat the thistles down,” Decock said in disbelief.

2 Feet of Golf-Ball-Sized Hail Hammers Colorado (Aug 22)

Up to golf ball-sized hail pounded the southern Denver metro area Thursday evening, accumulating so much at the intersection of Chatfield Avenue and Shaffer Parkway that it trapped at least one car and closed Chatfield for a time.  

A teenage driver was stuck in the hailstorm as he was talking to him mother on his cellphone.

"The water just takes my car rushing up over the hood and was like, 'Mom, I gotta go,'" said Bryndon Jackson.  "I was forced to open the door and all the water came rushing in and I knew I had to get out of there quick."

His car filled with water and hail and is likely totaled.

The county used a snowplow to open the road about an hour later.

Other areas experienced flooding from the heavy rains, including Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch and Ken Caryl.

The Ute Pass corridor of Highway 24, west of Manitou Springs, also experienced flooding and Highway 24 was closed as a safety precaution early in the evening, then flood sirens sounded in Manitou Springs as a surge of water came down into Fountain Creek at about 9:15 p.m.

Thanks @Howard,

great compilation of the evidence in the uptick of extreme weather events related to Hail. One thing to keep our eye out for going forward relates to this passage:

From Zetatalk on November 27, 2011

During any catastrophe causing loss of homes and businesses and crops, insurance companies routinely go bankrupt. In recent years they have tried to buffer their loses by refusing to insure homes for flood insurance if in flood plains, or refusing to insure homes for quake damage if in earthquake zones. If necessary in order to support business in the region, polices will be written but will become worthless when a disaster hits. The insurance executives take their retirement funds and run away, leaving their clients bereft. Governments, who must attempt to repair infrastructure, will do little to help those who have lost all. Those insurance companies not affected will continue as before, and those who were wiped out will make no apologies.

At what point in the near future do the insurance companies just refuse to pay out or go bankrupt and the people are left picking up there pieces themselves! The time is close because one would think it relates to the pending announcement from Obama

Amazing and thanks for the compilation of evidence.
