It's been a busy few weeks for hail adjusters with some major storms moving through the Prairies leaving a trail of crop and property damage. 

Scott McQueen, President of the Canadian Crop Hail Association says we may have had a slow start but in the last few weeks we've seen an increase in storm activity.

While McQueen didn't have total claim numbers available at the time of the interview, he notes in one week (July 25 - 31) they've had more than 1200 claims of crop damage reported between Alberta and Saskatchewan.

"In Saskatchewan, ranging from the Swift Current area, up into Rosetown, and then down the highway past Saskatoon, and into the Yorktown area, Kamsack and Canora. We've seen some pea to baseball sized hail in that Elrose, Beechy area."

Reports say a storm over the weekend (August 13) in the Kelvington area caused significant damage.
