Stunning Rope Tornado Whips Up Dust in Saskatchewan

A rope tornado whipped up dust and dirt as it snaked across farmland in D’Arcy, Saskatchewan, on June 15.

“This was early in the formation, when the tornado was moving quite quickly and had just touched down,” wrote filmer Danae Serfas on Facebook.

“Once it was over, we went to where it crossed the road. It had ripped all of the gravel off the ground,” Serfas told Storyful.

On Tuesday Environment Canada warned of “hot, windy and stormy” conditions capable of producing hail, tornadoes, and lightning.
