DENVER (AP) – Insurance agents say the financial toll of last week’s hailstorms in Colorado and Wyoming is in the millions of dollars.

The Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association says the insured damage to cars and homes in Colorado from last week’s storms is estimated at $165 million.

The large hail that rained down on Cheyenne Monday evening is estimated to have an insurance price tag of $120 million.

Association spokeswoman Carole Walker says most of the damage was due to the widespread hail that fell on Wednesday from Fountain through the Denver metro area, hitting Lakewood the hardest, along with significant damage reported in Loveland and Fort Collins.
