New Orleans, La. - After a second day of hail storms, damages are mounting across the metro area. Everything left out in the elements took a beating.
Hail was reported Monday in Covington, but the storm there might be considered mild compared to Sunday's icy beating on the West Bank.
Phones have been ringing off the hook at Manhattan Collision Center in Harvey. The guys working there say Sunday's hail storm was the worst they've seen in terms of damage.
While hail dings can typically be fixed, victims of this storm may have to have entire panels replaces. Some vehicles may even be a total loss.
The dents that can be repaired will go to shops like X-A-Dent in Metairie. Owner Scott Clark specializes in PDR, paintless dent repair. He says he's recruiting other specialists from across the country in anticipation of the upcoming demand for repairs.
"We're going to be working 15-, 16-hour days for the next six to seven months, seven days a week," said Clark.
If your vehicle was in the line of fire, contact your insurance company as soon as possible. Once your insurance company writes a check, repairs could take several days or even weeks.
"Just be patient with the shops," said Tony Otero with Manhattan Collision Center. "Everybody wants to do a good job and a correct job... This is just a process that takes quite a while to do."
