Many eye witness accounts have reported seeing major flooding near the McDonalds in Gregoire and lightning strikes in the downtown area.
Power was out in Thickwood and in some areas of Downtown causing around 4,000 residents to have no power. ATCO Electric has said that power should be back for most of the properties affected.
Traffic stops have also been reported out with the municipality reminding motorists that the intersection will now be a 4 way stop until the lights come back on.
There have also been some posts on Facebook from residents about basements being flooded.
Anyone who is experiencing any flooding is asked to call the pulse line at 780-743-7000.
