Blair Hail Storm Positively Impacted the Housing Stock
In June of 2014, a major hail storm hit Blair, NE. There was softball and baseball-sized hail that literally sheered off tree branches on the N and W face of a majority of trees in town leaving the streets plastered with debris. Most of the homes had their windows shattered out that faced N & W. Roofs, gutters, and siding were obliterated. Air conditioners that sat on those 2 sides took heavy damage with some needing to be replaced. After the hail came heavy downpours that saturated carpets & drywall. Nobody could board up their broken-out windows fast enough.
This storm raised the stress level of many in the town. Dealing with Roofing Contractors that swarmed the area for months & months to follow. It wasn’t until afterwards that some homeowners found out the hard way that their Contractor had cut corners or did the work incorrectly. Some homeowners still don’t know if the work was done right.
One positive aspect from this storm is that a majority of the housing stock ended up with new roofs, gutters, siding, windows, and some with new AC units. The older parts of town have houses from the 1900’s, but they look fantastic with their outside shell being newer now. The storm did improve the overall condition of the homes once the work was completed.
