A severe thunderstorm warning in Calgary continued into the evening Tuesday, as much of the city took a severe hail and rain beating.
The storm slowed transit services, flooded roads, and closed some downtown underpasses as the extreme weather unleashed large hail pellets and heavy rain shortly after rush hour.
Police said power outages took hold in some parts of the city and that some traffic lights were not working.
Across the city, people watched in awe as the severe weather took hold.
I have never seen so many emergency vehicles go every which way in this city #yyc— Naomi C (@nlcbc) August 5, 2015

Large branches and plenty of leaves fell from trees, and storm drains struggled to keep up with debris blocking the waterflow.

Unlucky pedestrians had to navigate large sections of flooded streets and sidewalks.
And many Calgarians were mourning the loss of their beloved gardens and plants.
To top it all off, in some places it was impossible to tell if it was summer or winter.
So far, there have been no estimates of damage or reports of people injured from the storm.
