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

'We're under fire!': Boaters duck for cover as hailstones the size of GOLF BALLS rain terror from the skies over a California lake

  • Wake-boarders were hit by storm of hailstones out on Lake Tahoe in California
  • Boarders watched as hailstones bounced off boat and left dents in wakeboards
  • The moment was captured by Trevor Donovan Ricioli, 31, on August 20 

This is the heart-stopping moment a terrified group of wake-boarders were rained down upon by hail stones the size of golf balls, leaving them scrambling for cover.

One man shouts out, 'We're under fire!', as thousands of hail stones splash into the surrounding waters on Lake Tahoe, California.

The sheer force of the hail stones was breathtaking, one onlooker said, as they bounced off the boat and left dents in wakeboards.

Record Hail Damage in Texas During 2016 Tops $5 Billion (Jul 6)

The Texas Department of Insurance reports that insured hail-related residential damage topped $5 billion, topping a previous state record of $1.9 billion set in 2015.

The Austin-based Insurance Council of Texas reports the most damaging hailstorm last year happened in the San Antonio area on April 12, causing $1.4 billion in insured losses.

Combined wind and hail damage to insured Texas residential property also set a record of almost $6 billion, shattering the previous record of $1.5 billion.

"2016 was by far the worst year Texas has ever had on record in hail damage,” Insurance Council of Texas spokesman Mark Hanna said.  “We topped the 5 billion mark.. that's worse than any state has ever had."

These numbers don’t even include auto damage, which raises the total over a billion dollars.

Local repair shops said from what they've seen after recent storms, they expect this year to be even worse.

Jason Davis of Davis Dent Repair has been in the business over 20 years, but this year stands out.

“We've never actually been this busy since I've been in business,” Jason Davis said. "There's a lot more this year. I mean, a lot more storms hit a lot more cities, which obviously did a lot more localized damage in those areas."

Davis has seen customers who came all the way from Denver City and Odessa.

Monster Colorado Hail Storm Breaks Records At $1.4 Billion In Damage (May 8)

More than 150,000 auto insurance claims and 50,000 homeowners claims are estimated to be filed in the wake of a monster hailstorm that pounded Colorado’s Front Range on May 8, putting it on pace to be the state’s most expensive insured catastrophe.

The hail storm caused more damage than any other storm in state history, according to the Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association. They estimate that by the time all claims have been filed, the total will be $1.4 billion.

Golf ball - and even baseball-sized - hail damaged homes, cars and businesses along the Front Range during the late afternoon and early evening hours. The largest hail pelted areas west of Denver, including Wheat Ridge, Golden and Lakewood.

The storm forced the Colorado Mills mall in Lakewood to close after the mall suffered substantial damage after being pounded by golf ball-size hail and heavy rain.

The mall had to be evacuated.

Thousands of people continue to deal with insurance and repair shop issues nearly two weeks after the powerful hailstorm punished Colorado.

Drivers are still reporting long waits at repair shops as crews feverishly work to get ahead on their workload.

Freak Hailstorm Causes Havoc in NE China (Jun 12)

A ferocious hail and rainstorm lashed Harbin City in northeast China, wreaking mayhem on the streets and disrupting traffic.

The streets of a Chinese city have been turned into rivers after a ferocious hailstorm left buses and cars submerged and fish flopping on the streets.

Cars were smashed by bricks from landslides, and a bus driving determinedly through a flooded street turned white by the hail.

Another driver had to abandon his car by crawling through the sun roof, his car marooned in the middle of a flooded street.

 Fish were also displaced, with scores thrashing for their lives in ankle-deep water in a car park.

 China has had its heaviest rainfall in 43 years between March and June, which is typically called the flood season.

 The season has seen an average rainfall of 178 mm nationwide, an increase of 22 percent from last year, according to National Climate Centre.

Massive Hail Trashes Nebraska Golf Course (May 9)

Photos have emerged on social media with images of hundreds of divots on putting surfaces at Hidden Valley Golf Course in Lincoln Nebraska rendering the course practically unplayable.

Mike Bossman posted an image of not-yet-melted hailstones fully submerged in the green's surface, many of the icy stones looking to be much larger than a normal golf ball.

Andrew Ozaki from local television station KETV also posted an image of some of the hailstones that battered Hidden Valley.

“Pretty much every green had damage to it,” said General manager Brad Neunaber.

Down the street, the Heartlands Church was also looking at the damage done to their building.

“They were baseball and softball size hail. The damage outside is really telling how big these stones were,” said church elder Bill Clark. Their van had broken windows and the inside of the building had water leaking everywhere.

In Omaha, smaller hail fell by the foot. Police officers had to help motorists out of high hail drifts while others were waiting for a snow shovel to dig their cars out, the Omaha World-Herald reports. Hail accumulated up to two feet deep in parts of the Omaha area.

“That is actually hail being moved by a front end loader,” Angela Brant describes in the video she took Thursday morning. “It was so bad last night. It was just absolutely, positively horrible.”

Epic Hail Pounds Texas, Damages at $2 Billion over past 4 Weeks (Apr 12)

Hailstones the size of softballs smashed windows, dented cars and caused extensive damage to homes across parts of North Texas on Monday.

The hail damaged cars — knocking out all the glass, including side mirrors — in parked vehicles, and even broke home windows like an icy intruder.

The community of Wylie, Texas, about 10 miles east of Plano, was particularly hard-hit. There, hail as large as 4.25 inches in diameter fell on Monday evening.

According to the National Weather Service in Dallas, there were 59 preliminary reports of "severe hail" between 2 p.m. and 9 p.m. local time on Monday. The largest hailstones fell in Wylie, where hailstones were as large as 4.25 inches in diameter.

The hail damage was so extensive, including to school buses, that the Wylie school district canceled classes on Tuesday at all of its 18 campuses, according to WFAA News.

"We are still assessing damage to Wylie ISD facilities," district spokesman Ian Halperin told the TV station. "So far we are finding broken glass, some water damage, and evidence of damage to rooftop air conditioning units."

Drivers caught in the hailstorm sat helplessly as their windows shattered, spreading glass inside the car and allowing the ice to enter the vehicle.

Hail damage can quickly add up. A series of hailstorms in Texas during March cost at least $1.1 billion in insured losses, and Monday's storms are likely to raise that tally by at least several hundred million.

According to Steve Bowen, a meteorologist at the insurance company Aon Benfield, insured losses in Texas from the past four weeks are "expected to exceed $2 billion."

The NWS said the Dallas area has had an unusually high number of large hail events during the severe thunderstorm season so far.

In a Facebook post, the NWS office in Dallas said the average number of severe hail reports (1" hail or larger) from 2007 to 2015 is 157. So far this year, there have already been 188 such reports.

In addition, this part of Texas averages 14 significant hail reports by this point in the year, yet so far in 2016 there have already been 30, the agency stated.

BMW of San Antonio and several Ancira dealerships plan to unload hail-damaged cars at discounted prices in "hail sales."

The majority of cars at San Antonio BMW and Ancira's Nissan and Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, Ram dealerships suffered hail damages in Tuesday night's hail storm, the companies said. Some cars at Ancira Kia also suffered damages.

Some cars sported broken windows, others had pockmarked hoods and roofs.

BMW Service Manager Allie Cook said about 30 percent of the damaged cars on their lot are totaled and won't be available for sale. Insurance adjusters are looking other 70 percent, she said, and will be repaired and sold at discount.

According to WFAA, Sara Correa was driving with her eight-month-old girl when she got caught in the hail.

"The back window was just completely shattered through. It was the scariest thing I've ever been through," Correa said.

Texas Declares War on Hail (Apr 8)

Thousands of severe hailstorms pelt the U.S. each year,​ causing, on average, $1 billion in damage to crops and property. The expense is so extreme that a few years ago Texas, eager to find ways to reduce insured losses, declared a war on hail.

Mother Nature wasn’t listening. The state has already been pummeled twice this year by major hailstorms, and the season has only just begun.

The icy projectiles can puncture roofs, shatter windshields, shred crops and, on rare occasion, take lives. Since 1990, hail has killed 14 people in the U.S. and injured more than 1,000, according to statistics kept by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

“Hail can cause a lot more damage than a tornado by a large margin if you get one that moves through a metro area,” said Patrick Marsh, a meteorologist with NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center.

The storms that battered Fort Worth and Collin County in Texas in March offer proof.

The first inflicted an estimated $600 million in damages. The second, a week later, caused an estimated $500 million in damages.

Hail, it turns out, is a very hot topic.

River of Hail Runs Through Arabian Desert (Nov 10)Extreme conditions have caused deadly havoc in the Middle East over the past fortnight, but a "river of hail" running through the Arabian desert is easily the most surreal in the unprecedented run of freak weather.

Footage of the odd phenomenon shot at an unspecified location shows a vast torrent of icy water flowing through the arid desert like a glacier on fast forward after recent hail storms fed into local waterways.

Large chunks of ice are visible in the hypnotic stream, and a fellow on camera cheerily puffing a cigarette scoops out a handful of hailstones that would have been at least golf ball-sized when they first hit the earth.

Apocalyptic Hailstorm Pounds Mexico, 4 Dead (Aug 31)

Authorities in Mexico state said Monday that at least four victims were killed when an unusually strong hailstorm hit the capital suburb.

A 45-day baby and two homeless people were amongst the victims of Sunday night’s storm, state government said in a press release.

Gov. Eruviel Avila said the baby died in a car accident but the parents and another five-year child survived. 

The most affected towns in the region received 53 millimeters (2 inches) of precipitation in 50 minutes – an amount three times more than the municipalities’ ability to drain.

By Monday afternoon, piles of hail several feet high were still blocking streets in the towns of Coacalco, Tultitlan and Ecatepec.  

Avila estimated that 100 houses suffered damages, and 35 trees and two billboards were also damaged by storm. The rising waters also carried vehicles and streetlights.

State government has advised residents in the region to continue to be careful. More precipitation is forecast for Monday night.
