SASKATOON – Environment Canada is currently assessing damage after at least two tornadoes landed in southern Saskatchewan on Saturday.

A single disturbance was tracked by meteorologists across Alberta to Saskatchewan and ended up in Manitoba.

The storm brought severe weather warnings to south-central and southeastern Saskatchewan Saturday afternoon and into early evening.

Multiple eyewitnesses identified one tornado north of Outlook, Sask. around 2:30 p.m.

Global News meteoroglogist Peter Quinlan caught up with one of the families who were hit the hardest by the terrifying twister.

Around 3:10 p.m., another tornado was spotted southeast of Kenaston, Sask. The only damage leftover appears to be a graveyard.

No injuries have been reported at this time.

Numerous heavy downpours along with hail were also reported to Environment Canada. Imperial, Sask. saw baseball-sized hail in the afternoon.

The agency warns people that twisters are erratic and can turn-on-a-dime.

As always, if threatening weather approaches, take cover indoors immediately.

Tornado season typically lasts until mid-August in Saskatchewan.
