Hailstorm Devastates Dauphin


Thurday night, a hailstorm in Dauphin, Manitoba rained down baseball-sized hail and left windows broken and rooftops damaged. Dauphin is a town situated roughly 300 km northwest of the province's capital of Winnipeg.

A Ford dealership in Dauphin had its entire lot of 200 vehicles bombarded by the hailstorm, causing broken windshields as well as side windows. Vehicle damages for Dauphin are estimated between $5-8 million.

There have also be unsubstantiated reports of tornado sightings from Thursday's hailstorm. Claims of such are being looked into by Environment Canada.

SN edit feature would be nice, but then it would take some the thinking that has to go into making a report. Sort of like taking some the sport out it. I learn a lot from making writing errors, but some of them are so stupid that you wonder about your self.
