Courtenay Mayor Bob Wells and his family are safe, but their van was severely damaged in an Alberta hailstorm Monday afternoon. While travelling to Manitoba for a family reunion, the Wells family got caught in a torrential storm, just south of Red Deer, Alberta.

Wells posted a Facebook Live video afterwards, showing the extensive damage to his vehicle.
