    In 1998, Quebec, eastern Ontario and New Brunswick suffered an ice storm that ended up being the most expensive natural disaster in Canada’s history.  Over 6 days, 100mm of freezing rain fell on these regions, displacing 4 million Canadians and causing about $5.5 billion Canadian dollars in property damage.

    The second most costly storm was the Calgary hailstorm, lasting 30 minutes.  The hail was 10cm in diameter and caused over $342 million in damages.
