Default Tornado in Lac Saint-Jean, QC

Quote:
Residents of an area north of Lac Saint-Jean in northeastern Quebec are scrambling to clean up the mess Monday after at least one tornado hit the area Saturday night, tearing apart buildings and bringing down trees.

That was in the community of Sainte-Elisabeth-de-Proulx, about 250 kilometres north of Quebec City, while heavy winds battered other communities nearby.

Hundreds of people were affected, but no one was injured.

The tornado was rated an F1, fairly low on a scale that goes from zero to five, but enough to cause heavy damage.

Judith is doing it wrong!

Judith Mercier said she ran into her trailer for cover when the storm struck.

But when she heard a bang when a tree fell on the roof of her trailer, she ran back out and hid in her father's vehicle out front.
