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.
