Scattered severe storms popped up around North Texas late Sunday, including one that moved through Lantana, Flower Mound, Highland Village and Lewisville around 8-8:30 p.m. The storm dumped hail as large as baseballs on the area, causing damage to some homes and vehicles, while other escaped unscathed.

Local residents can expect a deluge of roofing contractors in the area, soliciting their services. The Roofing Contractors Association of Texas recommends the following tips to avoid roofing scams:

  • Get more than one bid
  • Hire local and check references
  • Require a written contract and proof of insurance
  • Don’t provide payment upfront

If you were affected by the storm, report any damage to damage.tdem.texas.gov.
