I did hear about that one. I was pretty far away from it at the time as I was chasing storms closer to Lethbridge on Monday evening. Not very many people saw the tornado on Monday evening as it was out in the farms west of Airdrie and it was brief.

There was a tornado near Breton Alberta on Thursday evening. I missed seeing the tornado by about 15-20 minutes but a number of other spotters saw it. I had to drive 2 hours north just to get into position to where I thought the storms will form and before I even reach my target, the storm was already ongoing another hour drive northwards. The tornado near Breton killed a horse and a cow. As far as I know these two animal deaths are the first I've heard of in Alberta since at least 2013.
