Four Tornados Confirmed Near Taber Alberta June 6, 2012

The following footage was captured by a young man while out biking just as the storm hit Southern Alberta. There were no reported casualties, just power outages and damage to buildings on neighbouring farms.

The next video has gone viral, showing the storm from the perspective of a passenger in a car.  

Having contacted my mother the next day, as she lives close to the town, she reported only wind, lightning and thunder in her area.  Thank goodness!

Thank goodness is right - it must have been pretty scary to see tornadoes approaching. Did you hear about the snow and flooding in Canmore? Just rain and a little thunder and lightening here last night. Hopefully the sun will shine again soon!

Frightening! We have cyclones here and know something about such disasters. Thank goodness there were no casualities. Power can be restored and damage fixed, but loss of life is devastating.

Sorry I've taken so long to reply to a question you asked on my blog when you visited, Shirley. Osteospermum are in fact perennials here, but unfortunately in my particular location they do not get through our wet season very well. I treat them like annuals.

I've read some excellent stuff here. Definitely worth bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how so much effort you put to make this type of great informative site.
