While it is tornado season in Canada, weather experts say the sudden rash of twisters touching down in the West is highly unusual.
A funnel cloud was spotted Monday over Richmond, B.C., while another tornado east of Calgary destroyed a barn and downed a power line that electrocuted a horse in a barbed-wire pen on the property.
On the weekend, residents in Manitoba were terrorized by a series of twisters that ripped through the province in less than 24 hours.
"The fact that you've got almost a year's worth of tornadoes in less than 24 hours is unusual in that extent," Environment Canada's David Phillips told CTV.ca Tuesday.
