Alberta's cloud-seeding pilots see 2nd busiest year in 20 years
from CBC News
Fighting hailstorms in Alberta is getting a whole lot busier, according to the people behind the Alberta Hail Suppression Project, which uses planes to fly into storms and seed clouds in order to lessen the damage caused by hail. The insurance industry pays $3 million a year to lessen the impact of hailstorms by seeding clouds where storms are brewing, with the hope that it will result in fewer and less expensive insurance claims for hail-related damage. The pilots who fly the cloud-seeding planes say this has been their second busiest season in nearly two decades.
