“Then next thing you know, you hear this shattering,” Greg Yeghoian says while pointing to his car in his driveway.
Sounds from Saturday leave behind damage that screams for repairs on Monday.
“My car is only four months old,” Yeghoian says.
Violent hail in White Hall pelted Yeghoian’s property, punching divots in his yard, breaking into his car and scraping his house.
“Just a little under baseball size hail,” Yeghoian says while pulling up photos on his phone.
Mother nature’s curve ball has roofers swinging for the shingles.
“It’s been a really busy day today,” Joey Pullman says.
Pullman owns Joe Pullman Roofing and Construction. Monday, he stood atop a White Hall home and pointed out what looked like a crushed vent surrounded by a roof dotted with dents.
“Hail is very random, very erratic,” Pullman says.
Pullman adds that not only can hail cause immediate damage and poke holes into roofs, but it can also rough up just the initial layers, leading to long-term concerns.
“It’s aging that shingle super fast,” Pullman says.
After waiting out the storm, people in Yeghoian’s neighborhood are now waiting for insurance adjusters to stop by.
No one was hurt, but the road to recovery for these homes now includes patching up a few eyesores.
Some people in White Hall said they called rental car businesses in the Pine Bluff area and were told that there was a waiting list of at least 40 people.
