CALGARY- Environment Canada issued a tornado watch for several parts of Alberta on Thursday afternoon, and forecasters urged those living in Airdrie and surrounding areas are advised to head indoors immediately.

A severe hailstorm hit the Airdrie area, and smashed the windshields of nearly a dozen vehicles parked at CrossIron Mills.

Calgarians were also warned to brace for a severe thunderstorm, as were the Hanna, Coronation, Oyen, Lloydminster, Wainwright, Red Deer, Rocky Mountain House and Caroline areas. Severe thunderstorm watches were also been issued for the Strathmore, Vulcan, Red Deer and Calgary areas.

Hail destroyed windshields at CrossIron Mills.
