Here's the latest on the ice storm that has jolted North Texas.
Update, 1:53 p.m. Friday: Damage estimates from the North Texas ice storm have reached $30 million.
That may seem like a lot, but Mark Hanna with the Insurance Council of Texas tells KERA’s BJ Austin that’s just a drop in the bucket compared to recent North Texas hail storms.
“Just last year you had two hail storms that were much worse,” he said. “One was $750 million in damage. The other was $900 million in damage. So this ice storm is kind of a blip on the screen compared to some of the catastrophic weather conditions you’ve had in the past.”
