State Farm® Names Top Ten States With Most Hail Losses

Weather Conditions Put Kentucky in the Top Ten

Murfreesboro, TN (April 22, 2013)

Wind and hail storms remain some of the most frequent and severe causes of property damage. This year the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety Research Center conducted the first-ever indoor hailstorm, in an effort to research building products and ways to educate consumers.

Damage caused by wind and hail cost State Farm and its policyholders more than $3.9 billion in 2012. The states with the most wind/hail losses include:

  • Texas - 47,000 claims
  • Illinois - 41,000 claims
  • New York - 34,000 claims
  • Ohio - 31,000 claims
  • Missouri - 25,000 claims
  • Tennessee - 24,000 claims
  • Indiana - 23,000 claims
  • New Jersey - 23,000 claims
  • Kentucky - 22,000 claims
  • Colorado - 16,000 claims
