Hail is a form of solid precipitation. It is distinct from American sleet(called ice pellets outside of the United States), though the two are often confused. It consists of balls or irregular lumps of ice, each of which is called a hailstone. Sleet (ice pellets) falls generally in cold or storm weather while hail growth is greatly inhibited during cold surface temperatures. It can grow in thunderstorms even in warm temperatures.
Insurance will cover your car if it is stolen, vandalized or damaged by hail or fire.
Unless you have comprehensive coverage, you're not covered for any of these things. Comprehensive coverage pays for damage to your car that is not the result of a car accident.
