Those living in and around the area are being informed to seek shelter immediately and get ready to head down to a basement if things worsen.

If you’re driving on the highway in the area, park your vehicle safely and seek a nearby ditch to take cover if you feel you are in the path of immanent threat.

Alberta’s weather has been wild lately. Storm-chasers have been heading to Alberta for this specific reason. Those here to chase storms, remain safe out there!
