A large waterspout was seen near Vancouver Airport on November 6, as Environment Canada issued a tornado watch for parts of the city’s metropolitan areas.
Environment and Climate Change Canada told Storyful a waterspout formed west of Vancouver Airport and moved onto land. A senior meteorologist said tornado warnings and watches in the city were rare.
Strong winds were expected to affect the Vancouver area from Monday as a low-pressure system approached the northern tip of Vancouver Island.
