Heavy hailstorm caused extensive damage to crops in Martuni community of Armenia’s Gegharkunik Province on Thursday, 27 June.

The hail, that lasted nearly 30 minutes, entirely destroyed potato sowing areas, other vegetable crops and orchards.

In a statement released on Friday, the Martuni Municipality said a special commission has been set up to measure the hail damages upon the instruction of the community head.

The commission has already prepared a report on the matter after conducting a research and will submit it to the Gegharkunik Governor’s Office for compensation.
