"These types of funnel clouds form out of large cumulus clouds or very weak thunderstorms and normally do not have the energy to reach the ground," a statement on their website said. "However one or two of these funnels may briefly touch down and can become destructive over a very small area."
Environment Canada advises people to treat all funnel clouds and tornadoes seriously and avoid them when possible. "Should one develop overhead take shelter until it dissipates. Remember these funnel clouds will normally appear with little or no warning."
Environment Canada continues to monitor the situation closely.
