Wild Weather

2 nights ago, my area received 2 emergency alerts for tornado warnings. A strong storm cell was moving in and myself and a bunch of other like minded smart people did the opposite of what the alert said and headed outside towards the storm for some photos. Normally, these tornado warnings don't amount to anything and this time the storm did pass by with just some strong winds and a spectacular lightning show that lasted for hours. 

The very next day, which was also Canada Day, a large tornado did touch down south of us and did do some damage. I was going to say about 45 minutes south of me, but it has come to my attention recently that Canadians measure distance in time....which doesn't really make sense to most. By the map it was roughly 80km south. 

Here are a couple images of the storm cell:

Stay safe out there everyone!
