Last Monday, during a fierce thunder and lightening storm, hail plummeted in New Hyde Park and surrounding areas, destroying the windshields of many cars.
Along with the shattered windshields, residents also experienced a numerous amount of small dings in their cars the size of the rapidly falling hailstones.
Many homeowners were also victims of small dents in their overhang roofs and porch coverings.
As a result, residents lined up at auto repair shops and glass shops throughout the area to replace their battered windshields and to file insurance claims that will hopefully cover the costly repairs.
