The historic Lakewood Theater is on the mend after the devastating est Dallas hailstorm on June 13. Damage left the theater with 90-percent of the glass in its 100-foot art deco tower destroyed and half of the theater marquee smashed.
Damage estimates by one trade group put last month’s raging Dallas hailstorm among the worst ever recorded here — early $2 billion. The wreckage has some local homeowners facing an additional as they try to replace damaged roofs.
It’s estimated that tens of thousands of Dallas homes and some 60,000 vehicles in the area were damaged during the June 13 hailstorm. Now some of the hardest hit residents are getting help with the paperwork needed to start home repairs.
