Posted on 3/4/2014 5:00:00 PM.
State Farm has compiled data that ranks Louisiana seventh in the nation for the number of wind and hail storm claims during 2013. State Farm spokesperson Gary Stephenson says Louisiana is known for its coastal storms, but it has its fair share of thunderstorms that cause property damage.

"Some of these thunderstorms that roll through (Louisiana) can tear shingles and dented damage shingles, depending on the size of the hail."
Stephenson says State Farm paid more than three billion dollars in claims nationwide, as a result of property damage caused by wind and hail storms. In Louisiana alone, they had 14-thousand claims. He says impact resistant roofing can help reduce hail damage to your home.
