Extremely rare tornado sighting in British Columbia, Canada

According to reports and footage sent to Environment Canada, there is a possibility that an extremely rare tornado formed near Hayward Lake in Lower Mainland, B.C. on September 16. If confirmed, this will be the 5th tornado in British Columbia over the past 15 years.

After further investigation, there was evidence of rotation on Doppler radar suggesting a F0 tornado, however, the status will remain "possible," the agency said September 18.

The last reported tornadoes in the Lower Mainland occurred near Coquitlam on May 1, 1988 and another near Pitt Meadows on March 10, 1991, both F0.
