After a tornado with wind speeds of 220 km/h hits, Queensland Muskosh started cleanup

Environment Canada confirmed that the tornado that hit Mascus, Quebec on Monday spread 3 kilometers in the community, with wind speeds of 180 to 220 kilometers per hour.

An estimated 50 houses were destroyed by F2 storms. A man in his 60s was killed after the shed where he had taken refuge was destroyed.

Guillaume Tremblay, the mayor of Mascouche, said the cleanup is expected to take many days.

“You would think this is a scene from an American movie, but we are in Quebec,” said Tremblay from a community about 40 kilometers northeast of Montreal.

He said that his heart is with the family of the deceased.

“This is a sad episode,” he said. “I think it is a human instinct to run and find shelter.”
