Home and vehicle owners in Calgary assess hail damage after storm

A Calgary auto body shop is working “non-stop” to deal with hail claims stemming from a severe thunderstorm on Thursday.

Kevin Shangai, the manager of Horton Auto Body & Paint, said the shop had seen between 75 and 80 vehicles damaged by hail before noon on Friday. It has been a few years since a storm lead to his crew handling this sort of workload, he said.

“[The damage] will range anywhere between $1,200 all the way up to $10,000,” Shangi said.
