It was a nasty storm that brought close to hurricane-strength winds to Saskatchewan last week. And now, it's being blamed for the death of a 38 year-old woman.
RCMP say she was killed on a hog farm near Yorkton on Friday when a wind gust tipped over a shed, crushing her. In Saskatoon, police say a man was blown off the roof of a building, but is expected to recover.
In Swift Current, the winds were clocking in 115 km/h. Tractors flipped over, trees were overturned and a building in Regina was badly damaged. One of our viewers sent in this photo of roof damage in their neighbourhood.
In addition to gusty winds, some parts of the province were also hit with heavy snow. That led to poor visibility and slick highway conditions. At one point, several highways had to be shut down due to major accidents.
The weather was much calmer over the weekend, but now there's another storm tracking towards Saskatchewan.
“This is a classic spring storm for these provinces,” says Weather Network meteorologist Brian Dillon. “We'll see snow west of Saskatoon, wet snow along the Alberta / Saskatchewan border, and rain in southeastern Saskatchewan and southwestern Manitoba.”
