Canada May Have Had Its First Tornado of the Season

It appears as though Canada may have had its first tornado of the year, in an unusual place.

The tornado was spotted in the town of North Saanich on Vancouver Island, about 23 kilometres north of Victoria.

It was likely an EF-0 tornado with winds between 105 and 137 km/h.

There were no reports of injuries or damage.

In Canada, most tornadoes occur in southern Quebec, Ontario, the Prairie Provinces, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island.

British Columbia is where tornados occur the least of all the provinces.
