Hail storm causes major damage for North Okanagan orchardists

Mother Nature has created more challenges for North Okanagan orchardists.

Tuesday's hail storm caused damage in orchards in the BX, Coldstream and possibly the Bella Vista area.

"It looks pretty much like a wipe-out for the apple crop," said Dave Dobernigg, who has a farm on East Vernon Road.

"It looked like a nice crop out there and to see it disappear, is disappointing."

Dobernigg has insurance but it will not cover the entire value of his lost crop.
