OT, But, One Inch Hail??

Is this a case of EC over hyping a storm or did the insurance companies forget to seed the storms??

Severe thunderstorm warning for
City of Calgary continued

24 mm hail size have been reported with the severe thunderstorms moving through Calgary. Radars indicate these storms moving slowly eastward at 15 km/h.

My dad got into an accident because of the hail. It was really bad. One inch is probably not an exaggeration.

i got off work today and got absolutley drenched walking 40 feet to my car. the roads werent flooded yet, but pretty close. hail wasnt bad. little rabbit terds mixed in with the rain but i havent seen it rain that hard in years, maybe never. pretty trippy too considering i watched "the day after tommorow" movie last night before i went to bed.

I was on the deerfoot when the hail hit...I seriously thought the sunroof and windows were goners...I'd say half inch is a little closer to reality...although the odd piece could have been an inch...the hail was big enough that it was plugging the drainage systems, and we were very close to some heavy flooding problems.
