UPDATE: Prepare yourself for Wind Storm Part Deux, Calgary. Environment Canada has issued a second warning in as many days. Gusts from the west are currently bringing winds that could reach up to 90 kilometres per hour, according to the weather service.


If yesterday's wind in Calgary didn't blow you away, be prepared to be blown away by this time-lapse video of the storm traveling across the prairie sky.

The one minute and 10 second video, titled Stormlapse - 09/09/2012, was shot between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. on Sunday evening and captures the quick-moving clouds brought by high winds. Wind storms are not unique to Calgary, but what makes the video amazing in how dark the sky becomes at 22 seconds into the video.

According to Global Calgary, wind gusts of almost 100 kilometres per hour brought down a number of trees on 35 Avenue S.W. and 17 Avenue S.W.

Braden Latam (@BradenLatam) posted a photo to Twitter Monday morning, capturing a large tree branch that snapped and fell onto Royal Avenue S.W. It had yet to be cleaned up city crews.
