PHOTOS/VIDEOS: Here’s a Look at the Wednesday, July 27 Thundershowers Havoc

Here’s a composition of photos and videos of today’s flooding.

Edmontonians experienced quite a bit of flooding earlier today, and social media filled up with photos and videos of said floods rather quickly.

Here we’ve embedded all of the photos and videos for you to view within the comfort of your own homes, rather than going out and checking it out for yourselves. Of course, all media is owned by their respectful publishers.

Here are some photos and videos:

Here’s a look from ground level:

Here we have a massive puddle:

This happens every year in capital city, but for some reason nothing seems to be getting done to rectify the issue.

To anyone that got stuck or stranded by the flood waters, I hope that rescue came your way quickly, and that you were not hurt at all.

STRUCK BY LIGHTNING — One man wasn’t too lucky however. He was leaning on a tree when the tree got struck by a lightning bolt, which of course, travelled into his body as well. This man was part of a working crew. He fell to the ground shaking. Emergency crews treated him on scene, then rushed him to the hospital. He is in stable condition however, so thank goodness for that.
