Tornado destroys houses near Canadian capital Ottawa

Ford made the pledge Sunday after he arrived in Dunrobin, the Ottawa neighbourhood hardest hit by a pair of tornadoes that snapped power lines and levelled homes.

A tornado damaged cars in Gatineau, Que., and houses in a community west of Ottawa on Friday afternoon as much of southern Ontario saw severe thunderstorms and high wind gusts, Environment Canada said.

Meanwhile, electricity company HydroQuebec reported over 130,000 customers were without power in the Ottawa area Friday evening.

Hundreds of thousands of people were stranded without power in and around the Canadian capital Ottawa on Saturday after a tornado touched down twice, destroying some houses and ripping the roofs off others.

The agency said that at nearly the same time a second, slightly less powerful twister, touched down in the south Ottawa neighbourhood of Arlington Woods.

Florence also did damage to the state's coal ash disposal sites, including pits, ponds and landfills all owned by Duke Energy. About 10,000 people are in shelters across the state and around 343,000 are without power.

The Ottawa Hospital said in a tweet last night that it was treating six people with injuries related to the tornado.

On the north side of the Ottawa River, Gatineau Mayor Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin said more than 700 of his citizens were impacted by the storm and about 100 people took refuge in a shelter Friday night at a local college.

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

This has also caused damage to properties with downed trees and powerlines.

Frightening footage has been recorded of a tornado as it tore through a city in Canada. Personal items were strewn everywhere - a baby blanket, a life jacket, mattresses, lawn mowers, a fridge, a kitchen sink lying on the grass and even a love seat wrapped around a telephone pole.
