Up to 7 tornadoes spotted in Saskatchewan
4 confirmed, 3 more possible, Environment Canada says
There were at least four tornadoes in Saskatchewan Monday and perhaps three more on a day that also saw golf-ball-sized hail and heavy rain in many areas, Environment Canada said.
Severe thunderstorms developed in the afternoon after a low-pressure system moved across the southern and central parts of the province.
Tornadoes were spotted both west and southwest of Yorkton, as well as at Gray and Kronau.
As well, there were three other probable or possible tornadoes around Hague, Rosthern and north of Humboldt, according to Environment Canada's preliminary severe weather report.
There were no immediate reports of damage. The tornadoes were spotted between 4:40 p.m. and 7:20 p.m. CST.
Hail was reported in numerous communities with golf-ball-sized hailstones falling around Rouleau, south of Regina.
Southey was one of the towns that was hit with heavy rain. Some 50 millimetres fell there Monday.
It's been a big month for tornadoes, with three others being confirmed on the weekend.
CBC Saskatchewan weather consultant Wayne Miskolczi said today will see calmer weather, with slightly cooler temperatures and a high-pressure system moving in.
