Wind gusts up to 80 Km/h is one of the environmental features of Alberta. That is why they have a wind farm in south. Calgary is not immune to damages caused by wind at times. Today I went for my usual run by the Bow River and on the way back where I was going against the wind I almost could not feel my hands and was being push backward by the strong wind.
Then I wanted to get a little cash from the ATM at 7th St. and 8th Ave., SW and I realized that the authorities had closed the roads around that area apparently because debris had fallen off on the vehicles and had probably caused damages.
