Paradise Canyon Slammed by Wednesday Night Storm


LETHBRIDGE: The south side wasn't the only part of Lethbridge to take some abuse Wednesday night, as the storm also ravaged parts of Paradise Canyon.


Country 95 News had an opportunity to talk to a couple of people who had a front row seat to the devastation that raced through our city.


Tenny Hartman was one of the homeowners who had to sit back and watch as his house was pummeled. He explained that the storm hit with incredible speed and power, "I couldn't even see my back deck out of my back windows, it was just a sheet of grey. There was water coming in through out patio door and I looked out of the window, I saw my patio furniture was leaving my deck. We had a glass panel from our deck barrier that completely flew off, and even right now I have no idea where it is."


Collette Williamson was another individual who got a lot closer to the storm than she wanted. She was working in the sales centre of the Galko Homes show home when the it first hit, and she went over the chain of events that led to part of the roof being ripped off and a glass wall being shattered, "It just started raining, hailing and it was coming down, I couldn't even see out of the doors. I locked the door and went in the house and the next thing there was a big crash and I popped my head through the entry, and just broken glass everywhere, it took out the blinds, it ripped everything to the back of the garage."


After stepping outside, Collette also noticed that the passenger side window of her car had been smashed out during the downpour.


While a few reports of injuries linked to the storm have come in, there's no official word yet on how many people were hurt.
