Central Canada hit on Tuesday, 31. August untraditionally severe storms, with large hail, tornadoes, and gusting winds.
Supercell thunderstorms with strong directional wind shear to support rotating updrafts together with high cumulonimbusclouds brought unseasonably bad storm conditions into larger areas of Central Canada, mainly Saskatchewan, parts of Alberta, and Northern Plains, the USA.
The worst situation was in Regina and Assiniboia, Saskatchewan, where golf ball-sized hailstorms were reported, some tornadoes appeared and wind gusts reached more than 100 km/h.
Some parts of central Saskatchewan were after severe storms flooded.
In Regina, 93 km/h winds were observed.
The ground was quickly covered by white hail cover, trees were uprooted, cars and property were damaged.
