Tornado in Chatelaine Village, Canada

Several residents of the Chatelaine Village neighborhood north of Place d'Orleans said they only received an emergency alert on their phone after the storm was over - and that the warning was about a possible tornado in Gatineau. Environment Canada said late Sunday that preliminary information indicates the tornado was a Category EF-1 and may have been on the ground for more than 30 minutes. Firefighters, police, and city workers were on-hand soon after the storm Sunday helping clear debris tossed around the neighborhood and to check on residents. There were no reports of serious injuries. Ottawa Paramedic Service spokesman Marc-Antoine Deschamps said the service had not received any calls to respond to significant injuries.
