Environment Canada says that at least one tornado touched down late Saturday afternoon in mid-western Ontario.

Agency meteorologist Brian Owsiak says that reports from the ground, as well as radar signatures, confirmed that a twister hit just east of Chatsworth, Ontario.

But he says a second one may have also touched down as a severe storm system moved through the region around 5:00 p.m.

Environment Canada had issued tornado warnings at the time, and soon after a number of pictures of menacing funnel clouds were posted on social media.

There are reports of some houses being damaged, as well as hydro poles and trees knocked down, making a number of roads impassable, however, there has been no word of any injuries.

Owsiak says he expected a team from the Northern Tornadoes Project would be on the ground soon to assess the damage.
