A study was recently conducted by the NICB that recognized a 61% increase in hail claims and 136% increase in suspicious claims related in hail damage.
Leverage the power and longevity of our extensive database to identify the sizes of hail fall and dates of hail storms over extended time periods.
- A decade of hail data
- History of hailsize & date
- Address-specific reports
- Provided by WDT & Verisk Climate
Formerly called HailHistory, WDT’s HailSpot, is optimized to provide a quick analysis of the presence or absence of hail as detected by the United States Hail Data Archive (USHDA). Our HailSpot Report is a summary of the dates of hail activity greater than or equal to 0.75″ but less than 2.00″ in diameter and hail 2.00″ in diameter and greater. WDT and Verisk Climate offer these reports online and on your iOS device for quick, convenient retrieval of the information you need.
HailSpot is the latest technology for obtaining hail fall data right in the palm of your hand in just a matter of seconds. An extremely intuitive tool for your smartphone – HailSpot is designed to obtain accurate, immediate data regarding size and date of hail fall for your exact location from the vast weather database maintained by Weather Decision Technologiesand Verisk Climate. Visit HailSpot on the web for more information about the app.
HailSpot Reports are optimized for long search periods at a single location where there is an unknown hail event date. HailSpot can help target potential dates of hail activity. Here’s what you get:
- Extended search timeframes of hail activity for a single address/location spanning weeks, months or years
- Queries of the WDT USHDA radar derived hailswath database which displays the dates when a specific address fell within an area of hail
- A summary statement that lists the date(s) of hail activity categorized by hailswath size
- Simple on-line ordering or order right from our iPhone app
- Your report will arrive via email or onto your smartphone screen within seconds
The meteorological ingredients that make up the USHDA dataset include NEXRAD radar data for the continental United States which is then processed and filtered through a proprietary WDT algorithm and then quality assured by our team of expert meteorologists. HailSpot is clearly the best method by which to determine hail fall by date.
