With the extremely dry weather... - Edmonton
With the extremely dry weather... Weather in Edmonton Review

With the extremely dry weather in the last few years, northern Alberta's forests have become tinder dry and several very large forest fires have raged through the area this summer and spring. The House River fire near Fort McMurray burned over 750,000 acres and caused the evacuation of the village of Conklin. Please be careful and observe all fire bans!!!! One fire just 4 miles from my home this summer destroyed 2 acreage homes and some other buildings!

The Edmonton Tornado of 1987... Weather in Edmonton Review

The Edmonton Tornado of 1987 killed 27 people and did more than $330,000,000 damage.

Fortunately, this is a very rare event for Alberta but it pays to be prepared.

This picture shows it tearing through Refinery Row at the height of its fury.
