Severe thunderstorm warnings were issued for Calgary and parts of the surrounding area Tuesday afternoon.
Environment and Climate Change Canada said one thunderstorm was slowly moving over the southwest part of the city as of 6 p.m.
Other storms were developing to the west, north and east of Calgary.
The storms could produce Ping-Pong-ball-sized hail, winds gusts and heavy downpours.
A storm ripped through the Didsbury area earlier, blanketing the ground in hail and tearing leaves off trees.
