Relieved to see Florida isn’t in the top 10? While it may not be on that list, Florida does occasionally see hail storms. There were 19 reported hail storms in and near Orlando, Florida since 2011. The most recent storm with hail occurred in the Lake Nona area in August 2014.

Even small hail can cause damage to your vehicle and windshield. A small chip can turn into a large crack without notice, obscuring the driver’s vision and potentially causing a collision. It’s a good idea to get even small glass chips and cracks repaired quickly.
