One hail of a storm leaves car damages in its wake

Many residents' cars were badly damaged after Monday's strong thunderstorms accompanied by golf ball-sized hail swept through the area. And now, Yorktown Auto Body shop is busy trying to fix the damage done.

According to owner Perry Gusikoff, Yorktown Auto Body has seen an upward of 40 cars with hail damage that needed fixing. Common damages include cracked windshields and multiple dings.

The average cost for repair due to hail is $3,500 to $5,000, although Gusikoff says most, if not all of that, is usually covered under car insurance policies.
