Tornado destroys farm shed near Didsbury, Alberta

Photos and story courtesy of Dave Strang

Here's some pix from our local tornado on this past Tuesday afternoon. It first touched down 10 miles west of town and about 10 miles south (Didsbury highway) and proceeded in a northeasterly direction for another 4+ miles before dissipating 8 miles s/w of Olds. There was a lot of torn aluminum sheeting from farm buildings, shattered lumber and tree branches scattered throughout the affected area. Metal highway signposts were also bent over flat and power lines blown down. Luckily, no one was killed or injured.
