Environment Canada admits changes to the country's weather warning system were, in part, prompted by the Black Friday storm of 1987.
Dan Kulak with Environment Canada says, the warning systems these days are miles ahead of where they used to be.
"The radar system has been fully updated across the country, since 1987. Really, it's almost like asking, 'how has a car changed since 1987?' There are a whole lot of changes (to the weather system) that have taken place, especially here in Alberta."
Kulak says when the Black Friday storm hit 25 years ago, Environment Canada didn't keep as close an eye on tornado activity as it does now.
The storm went on to kill 27 people. (lk)
