Engineer in trial over Biloxi home calls insurance adjusters 'brainwashed'

Quote below from the article on sunherald.com

"GULFPORT -- Structural engineer Ralph Sinno, an expert on wind damage to buildings, testified in federal court Thursday that Hurricane Katrina's winds destroyed a North Biloxi home.

Sinno, a retired Mississippi State University professor, said State Farm Fire & Casualty Co. overlooked wind damage that would have been obvious to a sophomore engineering student.

Wind, he said, lifted up and twisted the house, as evidenced by a 45-degree crack in exterior brick that separated from the house."

Strong storm drops damaging hail

Brookshire, Texas -

Residents in Brookshire were woken up in the middle of the night because quarter-sized hail was falling.

The nearly 10-minute hail storm moved through about 2:15 a.m. on Wednesday, the first day of spring.

Thousands of pieces of hail littered the Meadowood Apartments in the 6000 block of Meadowood Lane. Residents there found damage to their homes and vehicles. Every north-facing window in the complex was hit by the hail.
