Extreme March Hail Storm Caused Severe Damage Throughout Brevard County  

Melbourne, Fla. – Venture Construction Group of Florida (VCGFL), a leading construction and restoration company, helps property owners with storm damage repairs caused by the devastating hail storm that raged through Brevard County on March 27.

According to The Weather Channel, golf ball-sized hail was reported along the Space Coast. Hail piled up like snow in the town of Trenton, near Gainesville. Wind gusts up to 47 mph were recorded at Port Canaveral.

According to Florida Today, wind gusts of up to 50 mph were reported across the Space Coast.
The hail storm caused widespread damage in Canaveral Groves, Rockledge, Cocoa, Satellite Beach, and Indialantic. Many areas saw covered roadways with nearly 2 inches of ping pong ball-sized ice chunks.

“It’s been a long time since Brevard has seen this,” said Matt Volkmer, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Melbourne. “This system was a little stronger than expected.” The storm left plenty of damage in its wake including broken windows, damaged pool screens, and shattered windshields.

VCGFL has been providing free property inspections, 24/7 emergency services including emergency dry-in and temporary roofs to businesses and commercial properties throughout Brevard County since March.

“We’ve been in the business for a long time and this hail storm was definitely one of the worst we’ve seen. The mixture of hail, heavy winds and rain can cause extensive damage to roofs, siding, gutters, exteriors, you name it. After an intense storm like this one, it’s especially important to get any damages assessed by a licensed and certified inspector because leaks often lead to even further damage,” says Stephen Shanton, president and CEO, Venture Construction Group of Florida.
