Some scary moments for members of the Siksika First Nation near Gleichen Wednesday, August 1.

A tornado warning was issued by Envrionment Canada just before 7 o'clock for the Gleichen area, followed by a second one in Newell County near Bassano about 7:45 sent residents scrambling for shelter.

Both warnings were cancelled around 8:30 p.m., but area residents had to hide out as severe thunderstorms rocked the area during that time.
