Finally, here is a video posted on YouTube of the hail storm as it occurred near Irricana, Alberta. Irricana is located about 30 km east of Airdrie. The radar image at 1640 MDT shows the cell after it hit Airdrie and about the time it was over Irricana. Except for the noise, this looks like it could have been recorded on January 6 instead of July 6. The hail reportedly accumulated to a depth of 12 inches in about 15 minutes.
