The phone rings for what feels like the 1,000th time at one State Farm agency in Manhattan. Kim Williams answers and assures the caller that a claim adjuster will be coming to look at her vehicle and she can call the auto repair shop to fix the broken glass. Williams is just one of dozens of agents working to file claims for the hundreds of people who had property damaged during a hail storm Monday morning.

At a body shop across town cars wait in a lot for an adjuster to determine their fate. Most of the damage from the storm was to vehicles but some businesses and homes were damaged as well.

At Auto Glass workers have been brought in from Nebraska and Missouri to help replace the hundreds of windshields that are shattered.

Clean up is underway all over the city and people are being patient for the most part according to Williams. They know it is going to take time.
