State Farm Seeing Increase in Auto Claims Due to Weather

West Texans are still reeling from last week's hail storm.

State Farm Insurance says that since Friday's storm, they've seen an increase in auto claims.

They say drivers can either get dents in their cars, their paint chipped and even shattered windows.

400 auto claims were made statewide and Ector County was the hardest hit area.

The insurance company says the hail storm is an example of why people should get comprehensive coverage.

"Comprehensive is anything out of your control. So, a deer running in front of you, hitting your vehicle, the hail storm, the weather, tornado, theft, anything that you did not cause to happen," said State Farm Agent, Heather Buske.

State Farm also wants to let people know, they will not see an increase in their premium over this one storm.
