North Carolina experiences extreme damage each year due to severe
thunderstorms and hail.However, we do
not know when the severe storms occur and where. People need to know so they can be prepared
and be safe.
The purpose of this project is to compare the damage caused by severe
thunderstorms and hail.
Hail events in North Carolina had a
greater impact on the state than did severe thunderstorms from 1958 to 2004.
