For the second day in a row, Calgary faced a pummelling of hail that left streets flooded, gardens damaged and plenty of frustrated Calgarians behind.
Environment Canada called a severe thunderstorm warning shortly after noon on Wednesday, not even 24 hours after a major storm ripped through the city.
Calgary Transit warned customers to expect delays, as the storm began to roll across the city shortly before 3 p.m.
The City of Calgary activated the Municipal Emergency Plan due to "anticipated heavy rains and severe weather conditions," according to a release. Calgarians were reminded to stay indoors and away from areas prone to flooding, such as manhole covers, storm water ponds and underpasses.

Calgarians tweeted photos and video of the storm, with many expressing their surprise with the back-to-back weather events.
According to The Weather Network, the stretch of land from Calgary to Red Deer to Edmonton, east of the Rocky Mountains, is considered the most hail storm-prone area on Earth.
