General Collision responds to hail damage in Southern Alberta

July 9, 2020

Manager of General Collision in Lethbridge, Kevin Jordan spoke about how the recent hail storm has impacted residents locally and given him more business.

"We had a big wave of it starting in Calgary a couple weeks ago and they keep getting hit with hail it seems. Some vehicles were parked at the Calgary airport. It wiped thousands at once, and then in return some of them came home. We were repairing them and looking at them". Jordan adds, "a lot of people don't seem to be in a hurry repairing it this year because of everything going on with the whole COVD-19 situation". 

Taber, Calgary and Rocky View County reported hail as big as tennis balls, along with pounding rain and strong winds. 6 of the top 10 most costly disasters in Canada have taken place in Alberta — including the top 2.
