Losses from golf-ball-sized hail in Pueblo and Colorado Springs, Colo., in August has been tallied at $60 million, making it the state’s costliest hail storm in three years.

It would be the most expensive storm since June 2004, when hail caused $146.5 million in damage. In 2007 dollars, that would be $156.3 million. The most expensive storm was in July 1990, incurring $625 million in damage, or $964 million when adjusted for inflation.
