Denver (AP) - An insurance group says a hail and wind storm in the Denver area last week caused an estimated $350 million in insured damage.
The Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association said Monday that about 52,400 claims were filed after golf ball-sized hail and strong winds battered roofs and vehicles and uprooted trees on July
The costliest storm in Colorado history was on July 11, 1990, with $625 million in insured hail damage. Association Executive Director Carole Walker says that's about $1 billion in today's dollars.
It's not clear where last week's storm would rank.
Previously, the second-costliest storm was June 13-14, 1984, with $276.7 million in hail damage, but the Association hasn't adjusted that figure for inflation.
