Another apparent gustnado turned up around 5:45 p.m. east of Ponoka on Highway 822.

The strong gusts caused a big tree to come crashing down on a home in the northwest community of Highlands.

It happened around 6 p.m.

Nobody was hurt but it did cause damage to the roof and cracked the home's drywall on the inside.

One of the men living inside says older trees often break during storms but have never hit the home before Tuesday.

A similar scene occurred in Beddington Heights.

All unplanned power outages in Calgary experienced during the storm have since been fixed.
