Golf ball-sized hail hits Assiniboia, Saskatchewan

A hail the size of a pea to a golf ball fell around 8:30 a.m.

“It just came at us all of a sudden; this dark, dark cloud and boom – it opened up,” said a city measure who was caught by the elements as she drove her car through town.

According to Schauenberg, the hailstorm mangled trees, littering city streets with branches and leaves.

“You can see that some places have been hit harder,” Schauenberg said.

“It’s just a disaster.”

“I have dents on my car. People are going to have a lot of insurance claims, home claims and car claims again,” she said.

Schauenberg said city crews were already busy cleaning up the streets Tuesday morning. However, damage to city property and facilities has yet to be assessed.
