Lilac w hail damage #798421

Asked June 29, 2022, 3:05 AM EDT

We live in Belle Fourche and experienced the severe hail storm a few weeks ago. We had planted 30 lilacs in spring of 2021 and they were dong great. Post the storm the lilacs still have green and look to be ok but with some black leaves. Are the black leaves a result of the hail? If so, what should we do? Thank you
