Meanwhile, another family was working in their back garden when the tornado touched down. On this photo snapped by Cecilia Wessels, her husband is seen mowing the lawn with a poker face. "Our whole street, everyone was on their back patios taking pictures," she told CBC News.
On June 2, a thunderstorm produced a spectacular swirl in a field a few kilometers northeast of Three Hills. There have been no reports of injuries from the tornado, although some photos captured by witnesses show downed trees and a roof ripped off a barn.
