Strong winds battered homes in Southern Alberta on Sunday night (Feb 21).

Footage shows how the gusts of up to 105 km/h hit the region, blowing down trees and rattling homes.

Residents said the force of the wind uprooted trees in the Lethbridge area. Commuters were also alerted to prepare for changing road conditions due to high winds.

Environment Canada warned: ‘High winds may cause downed trees or toss loose objects. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions due to high winds. Drivers may lose control of their vehicles; tall vehicles are at risk of being overturned.’
