Canada actually ranks second,behind the States,in regards to number of tornadoes,although our numbers are much lower than the U.S.
I've seen a few;actually got caught in one a number of years ago,it was just a small one that stayed on the ground for only about 1/2 mile (caused some damage to a few farms,but nothing too major),but let me tell you,what a terrifying experience! I now always watch the sky like a hawk whenever the storms roll in.Can't imagine having to deal with the monsters they get down south..
We get lots of funnel clouds (mainly cold air funnels),which are pretty harmless as long as they don't touch down.Now,those are cool to watch! Two years ago we had a storm that hung just at the edge of our farm,we counted almost two dozen different funnels drop out of that system,it was amazing to watch!
