    They'd never be able to describe the vehicle to the police. "It was loud and fast, something exotic probably, it was just a blur"

    Anyone experience any major damage?

    A sudden windstorm blew through Calgary on Friday, toppling trees and power lines and sending glass raining from a highrise building in the Victoria Park neighbourhood.

    A wind warning was issued for Calgary and surrounding areas at about 8 p.m. by Environment Canada, while severe thunderstorm warnings and tornado watches were issued for central and eastern parts of the province.

    The warning said winds up to 100 km/hr had been reported.

    Enmax said on social media its crews were dealing with multiple outages across Calgary.

    Calgary Fire Department responded to more than a dozen calls of trees and power lines being blown down across the city. Glass also fell from the 39th storey of a residential tower in the 1100 block of Third Street S.E., across from Cowboys Casino, near the Stampede grounds.

    Police cordoned off the area and no injuries were reported, said Batt. Chief Alistair Robin.

    Severe thunderstorm warnings were issued for parts of central and eastern Alberta, which were later downgraded.

    "A cold front moving through Alberta this evening is triggering thunderstorms. Thunderstorms will continue to move to the east and southeast into the evening," read the warning.

    ​A tornado watch was also in place for a short time in the Airdrie, Cochrane, Olds and Sundre​ ​areas.

    "This is a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation," read the warning.

    I live in guardian north and a pane of glass fell from the 39th floor. So funny watching cops tackle random drunk people for an hour as they gave no shits and walked into the taped off areas while we waited for them to give us the clear.

    3 degrees on the thermometer this morning. That's pretty damn cool for a mid-July morning even by Calgary standards.

    Wife and I were at inglewood night market when it hit. Blew everyone’s tents and shop displays away. Neat to see tons of people pitch in to hold tents down and help the vendors pack up quickly. There was a construction crane blowing around eerily though so when we saw that we got the heck out

    All the cones for that stupid makeshift lane reversal thing on 5th ave blew away, but then it also it blew in some "road closed" signage so cars were totally confused about what was going on... and it also broke the C-Train gate arm on the same road.

    I was watching for more serious damage, but all I saw was patio cushions blowing off peoples balconies. The building I am living in in was shuddering and lurching the entire time, which was a little unnerving giving that it is a concrete building. I thought my windows might blow out at some point, that would have been awesome!
