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.

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

Stay safe!
