Photos: Storm rages through Red Deer

Heavy wind knocks down trees as much of the City sees power outages

Heavy winds ripped through Red Deer on Tuesday night downing numerous trees and leaving much of the City without power.

The City initiated its Emergency Operations Centre to coordinate response after the wind storm. Red Deer Emergency Services, RCMP, EL&P and other City crews are responding to several areas where powerlines are down.

Weather wise, there are no confirmed reports of tornado warnings or tornadoes touching down.

For now, if any citizens spot powerlines down, do not go near them. For downed powerlines and trees, call 403-342-8132.
