The Canadian Crop Hail Association represents the companies that sell crop hail insurance to producers in Western Canada. The Hail Report is released every second Thursday during the hail season to provide information on storms, claims and related issues. The report is compiled by McArton & Associates Communications at Dilke, Saskatchewan.
The following is the report for Manitoba:
To date, the ratio of claims to policies in Manitoba is significantly higher than average. Two significant storms covered large areas of the province this month. A July 4th storm impacted a large area in the south-central and east side of the province. A July 10th storm hit areas around Bagot and on that same day, a large area along the south-west side of the province was impacted by a storm coming out of Saskatchewan. A storm on July 16th hit southwest of Carman in the Miami area and resulting damage is still to be determined.
