SASKATOON – Environment Canada has downgraded tornado warnings in central Saskatchewan on Saturday.

Meteorologists were tracking a severe thunderstorm that was producing tornadoes in the province.

An eyewitness reported a tornado on the ground near Outlook, Sask. at 2:40 p.m.

Eyewitnesses reported tornadoes on the ground near Hanley and Kenaston. These cells were moving eastward at 30 km/h.

Ole Remmen says he and his brother watched a tornado move toward the community of Kenaston, but he says it missed the town and went through the cemetery.

They jumped into their vehicles to see where it would go, but Remmen says it didn’t do any serious damage.

An eyewitness also reported a funnel cloud near Regina Beach at 3:05 p.m.

Tornado Safety

Environment Canada says this is a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation.

If you hear a roaring sound or see a funnel cloud, swirling debris near the ground, flying debris, or any threatening weather approaching, take shelter immediately.

Go indoors to a room on the lowest floor, away from outside walls and windows, such as a basement, bathroom, stairwell or interior closet.

As a last resort, lie in a low spot and protect your head from flying debris.
