Tens of thousands of insurance claims have arisen from the massive hailstorm that pounded the Berks County area last week.

The golf-ball sized hail damaged thousands of cars in the region last Thursday.

State Farm officials say they have received more than 10,000claims in Pennsylvania from this storm alone.

About 9,100of those claims were damaged cars.

The insurance company says it received just 6,300 hail-related claims in *all* of last year.
