This morning here in Millwoods I had blackouts for about an hour and a half, a little bit of hail with heavy rain, but it was really short lived.

A moist and unstable airmass will let strong thunderstorms to develop over southern Alberta this afternoon. These storms are capable of producing large hail and gusty winds.
I'm listening to the radio right now and they were reporting a tornado touching down in or around Stirling. Details still sketchy.

It was pretty crazy this morning at about 8:30ish. Tonnes of thunder, and really dark, but it waited awhile to rain, and then when it did, it poured.

You'll be fine, guys. I wish I could be back in Edmonton to partake of this weather madness with you all! Just don't venture out into the outskirts of the city where you would be hit by any potential tornadoes

I'm just a summer student, so I lost my eagerness to work after 2 weeks lol.
But for awhile this morning I was just watching all the people get scared from the thunder outside.
