The event occurred in the afternoon and, according to the tweet, the driver was shaken but uninjured.

The Weather Network predicts that winds around the province may exceed 100 kilometres per hour. 

Saskatchewan might be in even worse shape with "hurricane force gusts of 120+ km/hr."

Conditions are dangerous, whether you're in a vehicle or not, so be sure to check the forecast and only travel if necessary.
