Tornadoes pass close to SK towns

Residents in parts of Saskatchewan ran for cover, stared in awe or jumped in their trucks to follow what they believe were several tornadoes.

Environment Canada issued tornado warnings for numerous areas in south-central Saskatchewan Saturday afternoon.

So far the damage appears to have been limited mostly to fallen trees.

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.

SaskPower has tweeted that tornadoes have caused outages at Davidson, Hanley, Kenaston, Rosedale and surrounding areas.
