Less than a week after massive storms did damage in D’Hanis, Hondo, and Castroville, a pair of thunderstorms left behind paths of large hail through San Antonio and Boerne. Developing around 6 p.m. in Medina County, storms quickly formed thanks to heat, humidity, and a dryline. The combination of the three were enough to push through a cap on the atmosphere, creating sizable hail.
At one point, the supercell thunderstorm split, with a left-moving storm moving north to Boerne and a right-moving storm that traveled through San Antonio. The storms would travel long distances, dropping hail along the way.
Pictures and videos continued to come into our KSAT Connect, showing the size of the hail and the damage it was leaving behind.
Here are some images of the path of large hail through Boerne, central Bexar County, and east of San Antonio. The hail swath continued east through parts of eastern San Antonio and eventually along I-10 to just south of Seguin. Please note that these are radar estimated hail sizes. In truth, larger hailstones than indicated fell in spots within the hail swath.
If you think you have damage, you’ll want to document the date and size of hail when filing an insurance claim.
