Blizzard batters Brooks
Southern Alberta was slammed with a blizzard so hard Monday that flights out of the province were cancelled.
Blowing snow reduced visibility on roads and highways outside the Centennial City. A blizzard warning was put effect Monday morning for southern Alberta.
The warning issued Monday covered all of central and southern Alberta’s major communities, including Brooks, Red Deer, Airdrie, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat and Drumheller.
Environment Canada officials reported the worst conditions were expected in the corridor from Red Deer south to Strathmore to Lethbridge, with northerly winds reaching 80 km/h with zero visibility.
WestJet posted restrictions for people changing flights throughout Alberta Monday, in and out of Calgary, Edmonton and Grande Prairie.
