Ottowa tornado: Watch SHOCKING video as tornado TEARS through Canada suburb


Twin tornadoes tore through the Ottowa-Gatineau area of Canada on Friday, damaging buildings, flipping cars and leaving tens of thousands without power according to local reports.

The powerful twisters were caught on video as they ripped through a suburban neighbourhood.

The shocking footage shows debris flying through the neighbourhood and resident filming the video can be heard screaming as the tornado devastates homes.

The resident is eventually forced to retreat as the tornado becomes dangerously close and debris flies towards the camera.

Anthony Di Monte, chief of Ottawa Emergency and Protective Services, told CTV News that there are currently 30 known injuries across the city with five people in the Dunrobin area of Ottawa suffering critical injuries.

The Ottawa Hospital said late Friday night it had received six patients, two of them in critical condition.

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson said the destruction from the twister looked like “some bomb was dropped from the air”.

Another larger twister caused widespread devastation as it tore through the cities Kinburn and Dunrobin in Ontario and Pontiac and Gatineau in Quebec, reaching wind speeds of up to 260 km/h.

Environment Canada measures the intensity of wind damage using something called the Enhanced Fujita Scale, or EF-Scale.

This six-point scale ranks events such as tornadoes from zero to five, with the latter being the most severe category.

The government department revealed the larger Canada tornado was the first time in recorded history that an EF3 tornado had ripped through the country in the month of September.
