Tornado makes landfall west of Montreal Island


The fire department in Rigaud, Quebec is looking into reports of a tornado hitting a town west of Montreal Island and causing damage to several houses.

Rigaud Mayor Marie-Claude Frigault’s spokesperson Genevieve Hamel said a tall storage tower was knocked down on Petit Brule Street near the Ontario border.

The Quebec police confirmed that they got a lot of calls from the area about funnel clouds touching the ground.

St Lazare resident Baradaran Glady was driving to pick up her dog Buster from a doggy daycare when a funnel formed in front of her car.

“She said we couldn’t continue on the road because there was a broken tree and we could see a tornado. ” “Then, another storm began as we were driving in that direction. ” It was frightening.

Jean-Philippe Begin, a meteorologist from Environment Canada, said that they got many real images and videos from the public.

“Looks like there might be a tornado, but we’ll be sure in the next few days,” Begin said. “The pictures seem like they are actually happening. ”

Begin thinks that teams should investigate more to make sure the funnel cloud really came down, just like in a criminal investigation. He said it will probably be confirmed soon with the help of teams from Western University in Ontario.

Hamel said four houses near Ski Mont-Rigaud hill were also damaged.

No one got hurt and the fire department is looking into what happened.
