Wow, what a Sunday in Southern Alberta.
With the wind clocking in at 117kph here in Lethbridge, 131 in Brocket & Stirling & 144 in Claresholm, grass fires seriously threatened a lot of areas.
Really what it all comes down to is AN IMPECCABLE JOB WELL DONE BY LETHBRIDGE & AREA FIREFIGHTERS & EMERGENCY CREWS, as well as everyone who helped.
Evacuees may now return to their homes. BUT a state of local emergency continues to be in effect.
Here's the latest info from Alberta Emergency Alert http://goo.gl/MjEkS
