Strong winds, hail, lightning, heavy rain, and funnel clouds were the order of the month for July.
The Insurance Bureau of Canada is out with a new estimate on insurable damages from the storms between July 8th-11th in the Prairie provinces.
Officials say the system, which caused flooding in Estevan, SK and a brief tornado near Humboldt, SK, caused $48-million in insurable damages.
IBC Western and Pacific Vice-President Bill Adams says severe storms have been happening more often and with greater intensity across the Prairies, and it’s important for Canadians to better understand their policies and what’s covered.
“It’s also essential to have an emergency preparedness plan and know what to do before, during and after bad weather strikes,” Adams said in a release.
