Alberta Continues Storm Cleanup #ABstorm



Parts of southern Alberta, including the City of Calgary, are still cleaning up after a strong weather system pushed through the area on Saturday evening.


The low delivered severe thunderstorms to several areas of the province.


There have been countless reports of flooding, power outages, very large hail, and several possible tornadoes.


There were reports of three tornadoes. The first was spotted at 7:00 pm MDT southeast of Calgary, there was another report of a tornado near McNab around 7:30 pm MDT, and near Chin Lakes/Barnwell/Taber around 8 pm MDT.
