Videos Showing Tornado Touch Down In Quebec
Severe storms continue to ravage much of southern Ontario and Quebec.
Environment Canada has issued several warnings for the region, including alerts for storng wind and rainfall.
Two hours ago, the meteorological agency also posted a "tornado watch" for the Ottawa-Gatineau area. That watch was upgraded to a warning in the next hour.
Now it appears that at least one tornado has touched down in Gatineau.
Twitter user Ryan Valley posted a video of what appears to be a funnel cloud just outside the capital. Clouds of dust below the funnel seem to indicate that it had, indeed, reached the surface and become a tornado.

Another user, Jon, also posted this video, which appears to confirm that a tornado did occur:
Twitter has erupted in footage of the storm from residents of the capital region.
In this video, a tornado can be seen causing explosions as it travels through the city:

Residents of Ottawa and Gatineau should stay apprised of updates from Environment Canada.
