Crawford responds to significant CAT event in Canada.
On Saturday, May 21, 2022, at approximately 12:45p.m., Environment Canada issued a storm warning for parts of southern Ontario and Quebec. The result was powerful thunder and windstorms that swept through the region, triggered by a cold front that sliced through the heat and humidity. The event is being called a “derecho,” which describes a group of thunderstorms that produce high winds travelling at speeds of at least 90km/h.
The storm caused extensive damages to an area that stretched for almost 1,000km from the Michigan border all the way to Quebec City.
Crawford's response to this storm was immediate and ongoing. For more details on the storm and Crawford's involvement, please see our event briefing.
