The stormy weather has seemingly been non-stop throughout Alberta this summer, with the latest severe weather event striking 150 km south of Calgary in the village of Carmangay.
A tornado made its way through the area on Thursday, being captured on camera by many residents.
- Calgary's free outdoor cinema postponed due to bad weather
- New permanent LGBTQ rainbow crosswalk coming to downtown Calgary
- East Village just got a controversial new art installation
This marks the 13th confirmed twister to hit the province in 2019, according to Environment Canada, while another four are still being investigated.
The seasonal average is 15 tornadoes, meaning that this year is definitely on the higher end of that scale.
Here’s a look at the natural phenomenon in action:
