People in the southeastern part of the province are cleaning up the damage after a massive storm hit the area Saturday.

"Terrifying," described Val Happychuck, who works at the Buffalo Point Resort in the area.

"It's probably one of the worst storms I've ever seen. It was very quick. I don't think it lasted 10 minutes, if that, but trees did go down, tree tops came off."

Funnel-like clouds appeared in Warroad, Minn., which sits near the Manitoba border. (CBC)

Happychuck said the storm moved in fast, bringing in torrential rains and strong winds.

"Mostly trees down," she said. "Some fell on some of the cabins, some on boats. I know my neighbour next door had one on his car."

She also said some people at the resort reported seeing funnel clouds on the lake.

There have been no reports of anyone being injured.

Power in the area was out for 12 hours.

The storm hit the northwestern part of Ontario where Hydro One said 30,000 people were without power.

An employee at a hotel in Kenora, Ont. told CBC News hundreds of trees are down on the Ontario side as well.

Power in both regions has now been restored.
