Severe weather in Alberta: Golf ball-sized hail smashes cars along major highway

by News Update

Hail the size of softballs fell from the sky Monday as a storm ripped through central and southern Alberta.

Vehicles had pulled off the Queen Elizabeth II Highway on Monday evening between Calgary and Red Deer to wait out a hail storm that had damaged many cars.

According to the RCMP, 70 vehicles had their windshields and windows smashed out by the storm. First responders from Innisfail had set up a triage station for those who need help, RCMP told Global News.

Late July and early August are typically active weather times for Alberta. The province has seen several severe weather alerts — including tornado watches and warnings — all long weekend.

It's not climate change. Its biblical prophesy as per the book of revelation. Large hail stone took place in Egypy during exodus. Wake up everyone. Jesus is coming back soon

Praying for anyone that might have been hurt by the hail.
John 3:16-17
King James Version
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

1 Corinthians 15:1-4
King James Version

1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

The gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ.

Jesus died for our sins, He was buried and He rose again on the third day.


Normal isn’t coming back, but Jesus Christ is. May today be the day you believe (i.e trust in Jesus Christ ) and you are saved. Blessings to you in Jesus Christ mighty name.
