DALLAS — With North Texas under a severe thunderstorm watch through early Thursday, April 18, residents were doing everything they could to protect their property from potentially devastating hail.
Social media photos showed car owners taping, tying and stacking everything from inflatable mattresses to rows of pool noodles onto their vehicles.
According to WFAA, “very large hail, baseball size or larger” was possible in the western part of North Texas Wednesday evening, with tornadoes also possible.
Would the DIY car armor keep windshields, roofs and hoods unblemished? A test by WFAA suggested it may not, but you can’t blame these people for trying.
