Hails claims reach another 120 from storms in late June and early July across the prairies

The Canadian Crop Hail Association says crop damage hail claims total over 120 for storms in late June and early July.

The president of the Canadian Crop Hail Association, Rick Omelchenko, says heavy rain and flooding contributed to crop damage from hailstorms in parts of Western Canada.

He says storms damaged crops in Churchbridge, Calder, Biggar, Estevan, Lake Lenore, Tisdale, Neudorf, Plenty, Semans and Assiniboia.

Omelchenko says damage ranges from light to severe and stones are pea to tennis ball in size.

So far, he says 2020 has been a very busy hail season across the prairies.
