Detroit Lakes, MN (WDAY TV) - Insurance agents in the Detroit Lakes area are swamped, filling out claims to cover repair costs from last night's hail damage.

Agents say this is just what you're supposed to do - snap pictures right after the damage occurs, or, if you can, bring in the damaged property. They say most insurance companies allow people to fill out claims days after the damage, so you can take your time to make a decision.

Agents say they're working around the clock to process claims quickly.

Greg Hildenbrand – State Farm Insurance Agent: "Our hearts go out to people who have to go through the inconvenience, but the main thing is, nobody is getting hurt in these claims."

Agents say some companies have 24 - 7 claim processing. Just check with your agent.
