The Canadian Crop Hail Association says adjusters are following up on more than 2000 claims across the Prairies in the first 2 1/2 weeks of the month. Storms produced pea-to-quarter size hail that damaged crops along with heavy rain in some areas that is making field access difficult for adjusters.
