Environment Canada will be investigating two reports of tornadoes in southern Saskatchewan Monday evening.

One tornado was reported north of Glenbain and another south of Hodgeville, both of which are around one hour from Swift Current. 

Severe thunderstorm warnings were also issued by Environment Canada Monday evening for much of the southern part of the province. 

There was a significant amount of hail in the Regina Area, as well as areas near Kindersley. 

According to Environment Canada, there were reports of golf ball-sized hail in Moose Jaw, and ping-pong ball-sized hail near Kindersley.

Bill McDonald lives in the South Hill neighbourhood of Moose Jaw, and said the sound of the hailstones hitting the roof was like rifle shots being fired. The roof of McDonald’s sunroom, which is made of supposedly hail resistant polycarbonate, was filled with small holes. 

“I was thinking, is it ever nice to have home insurance? Because to replace this, it’s going to be fairly expensive,” he said. 

McDonald said the storm hit his property at around 6:30 p.m. Monday night, and lasted for around 20 minutes.

Photos and videos posted to social media on Monday night show even more significant damage.
