We were in a tornado warning this afternoon. People’s memories here in Edmonton are still fresh with the 1987 “Black Friday” tornado and the death and destruction it brought. And with the recent disaster in Oklahoma, people were understandably on edge this afternoon. Preparation is essential to survive the worst these storms offer. Fortunately the storm passed without any issues other than some flooding in parts of the city.
This is my video account of what was going on after I got home from work which was at the height of the warning.
