CCHA Investigating Hail Claims

The Canadian Crop Hail Association (CCHA) says severe storms that occurred earlier this month dropped golf ball sized hail and spawned tornadoes and high winds causing damage to crops across western Canada.
 
The storms occurred June 28 and July 2, July 4-10 and July 12.
 
CCHA member companies are investigating about 1,200 claims of crop damage during that time period.
 
Murray Bantle, of Co-operative Hail Insurance Company, said storms damaged cereals, oilseed and pulses in the Manitoba communities of Hamiota, Melita, Pierson, Reston and Elkhorn.
