Incredible Series Of Storms

August 6-7, 2011- Noon to well after midnight
This video starts off fast and ends with a bang!

Coffee at Starbucks in south Regina was quite the experience on this day as clouds quickly merged in front of the shop to form a very ominous looking spectacle.
This cloud moved towards Weyburn, Saskatchewan which prompted Environment Canada to issue tornado warnings as it developed a hook echo about 3 hours later.

Storms developed all around the province and severe thunderstorm warnings were issued almost everywhere except the city of Regina which narrowly escaped any of the damage. Weyburn, unfortunately got hit the hardest with yet another flash flood that raised water levels in that area which has had far more than enough rain this year. That city once again looks like a lake. Large amounts of small hail were reported in many areas, especially south and east of Regina.

The Weather Network picked up one of the clips in this video earlier in the day as clouds here looked nasty.

Later on, after midnight storm cells came together to produce some intense lightning over the city as seen at the end of the video.
