High winds
Motorists were asked to avoid a section of highway near Bashaw, Ab. on Sat. Sept. 2, and people staying at two different summer villages were told to seek shelter because of what RCMP described as “extremely high winds”.
The RCMP said officers asked people at the summer villages of White Sands and Rochon Sands, near Buffalo Lake, “to seek shelter and get off the lake as quickly as possible” due to the “weather event.”
According to RCMP, residents and visitors cooperated, and no injuries were reported.
Police found that due to extremely high winds, Calcium Chloride, that occurs naturally along a portion of Highway 53 east of Bashaw, was made airborne causing reduced visibility in the area.
At the time of this weather event, a four vehicle collision was reported with only minor injuries.
No tractor trailer unit was involved and there has been no chemical spill as was originally reported to police.
