Severe Evening Across Southern Alberta

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Tuesday, July 24, 2018

Monday was quite severe across southern Alberta.

Strong thunderstorms pushed across the area unleashing heavy rain, large hail, and strong winds.

Calgary was particularly hit hard with a large amount of hail slamming onto city streets.

Here are some photos and video from Monday night.

At the same time on Friday severe storms moved through Alberta. Meteorologists at Environment and Climate Change Canada received reports of a possible brief tornado southwest of Lloydminster around 8:20 pm.

At this time, there is insufficient evidence to confirm that a tornado has touched down; however, they are actively seeking pictures and/or video of the possible tornado or damage it may have caused.
