Dog swept away by tornado in Alberta finds her way home

Friday, July 19th 2019, 5:53 pm - A small kitten was also found in the debris

A family dog named Belle was able to find her way home after being swept away by a tornado that struck near Carmangay in southern Alberta on July 18.

The dog returned unhurt and happily wagged her tail as her family greeted her outside, which is shown in the video below.

Several other animals on the property managed to survive the storm. A kitten was found crying out for help from under a pile of debris, who was later saved by Weather Network reporter Kyle Brittain. After he saved the kitten, a crying calf is seen running towards him after its bottle feeder was broken by the storm.
