Yet another severe thunderstorm hit Alberta on Monday night, with hail the size of softballs cracking windshields, smashing windows, and damaging cars.
A terrifying video was shared on Twitter yesterday showing how the combination of extremely large hailstones and strong gusts can demolish a car in seconds.
The occupants tried to shelter and protect themselves but still suffered cuts and bruises.
