Calgary’s summer snowfall breaks branches, downs power lines

CALGARY – The City of Calgary remains under a snowfall warning, with 10 to 15 cm expected on Tuesday.

It will be the second round of snow the city has seen in the last 24 hours.

A late summer snowfall that began on Monday morning covered the city as the day progressed.

The Calgary Fire Department says they received at least 40 calls on Monday night – and just as many on Tuesday morning – after heavy wet snow collected on tree branches, causing them to snap and tumble to the ground.

Meanwhile, thousands of people in several different communities spent part of their evening in the dark because of downed power lines.

“If there are branches that are down on lines… it takes a crew to go out there have the power shut off, if it isn’t already, safely remove the trees or branches — and then move on and be able to reenergize the area,” explains Doris Kaufmann Woodcock, Enmax.
