North Texans prepare for hail with mattresses, pillows and bubblewrap

North Texans got creative Tuesday to protect their cars with the threat of severe weather predicted.

Photos submitted to FOX 4 showed people using everything from pillows to mattresses to cardboard to wood to prevent their vehicles from being damaged by hail.

University of North Texas students are also finding creative ways to protect their vehicles.

There have already been several major hailstorms this season that have caused major damage to homes, schools and vehicles. The most recent hailstorm on April 11 hit Wylie hard and people are still working to repair the destruction.

A line of storms is predicted to sweep through North Texas late Tuesday evening and overnight. It could bring wind, hail and high winds and possibly some flooding.
