What is hail?
Hail forms during a thunderstorm when raindrops are carried upward into cold areas of the atmosphere, where they freeze into balls of ice. These balls of ice, or hailstones, can travel up to 190 km/h, range in size from a pea to a softball, and can damage roof shingles, skylights, car windows, and more.
Who is most at risk?
Much of the damage from hail occurs during the spring and summer, when warm and humid weather fuels severe thunderstorms, yet hail can occur at any time of year.
While hailstorms can happen across the country, Central and Western Canada are most frequently impacted, including Alberta and Manitoba.
