Directing Traffic in the wind

Directing Traffic in the wind

This is a cop controlling traffic on an entry point into to downtown.

Calgary had a wind storm on Sunday, November 27, 2011. The winds gusted up to 130km/h. Debris blew around, breaking glass, causing a hazard around numerous high rise towers. As always, there was a lot of active construction downtown, especially since this was one of the last warm days of the year. Police tried to keep people out of downtown, shutting down various intersections. A lot of confusion was caused for motorists, pedestrians, and transit users. Although, there was no official evacation. So, people could come and go, with difficulty. This is one of the pictures I took in and around the the downtown.
