Calgary Windstorm: Strong Winds Flip Transport Truck Over On Highway (VIDEO)
There was probably good reason why authorities warned people to stay off the roads during Sunday's windstorm in southern Alberta. Downtown Calgary was closed to traffic because of falling and flying debris. On the highways, drivers had to watch out for things more dramatic than flying junk.
A video filmed by the passenger in this car caught the moment a transport truck flipped over due to strong wind gusts. At about 30-seconds you can also see a road sign that has been bent over by the storm.
If you need more evidence that the weekend's windstorm was a big one, check out this video of an Airbus landing during the storm.
Calgarians and other Albertans caught more of the storm's impact on camera.
