Every spring, severe thunderstorms begin forming on the plains of west Texas and often dump large hail and spawn damaging tornadoes. Prior to the height of the storm season, representatives from the Insurance Council of Texas (ICT) travel to the area...
According to information from the Texas Department of Transportation, more than 3,700 people were killed on Texas roadways last year marking a 10% increase in traffic deaths from the previous year.
Spring may still be three weeks away, but the calendar hasn't slowed down the state's thunderstorm activity. Texas has already seen tornadoes tear up homes in DeKalb in northeast Texas and Desoto just outside Dallas, and multiple hailstorms were reported.
Severe weather preparedness tips
Insurance in Texas is among the most expensive in the nation because Texas weather brings with it every weather hazard possible. From hailstorms to tornados, high winds and heavy rain, freezing temperatures to heat waves; Texas has it all, and springtime in Texas is when much of the severe weather hits.
