American Family Insurance preparing to get thousands of hail storm damage claims

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - American Family Insurance of Madison is gearing up for thousands of damage claims connected with massive hail storms from Tuesday in Iowa and Nebraska.  

The company sent a catastrophe team to help its local employees deal with damage claims. The storms dumped baseball-sized hail.  

American Family alone expects up to 4,000 vehicle damage claims, and 4,500 property claims from the hail. The storms also dumped up to four inches of rain.  

Wisconsin has had its share of severe storms, too, during the past couple weeks. One storm in southeast Wisconsin had baseball-sized hail a few days ago.  

3.75 inches of rain fell in parts of western Wisconsin Sunday and Monday.
