Stretches of a Montreal suburb were left left devastated on Tuesday after a deadly tornado tore through the area a day before.
One man was killed in the storm and nearly 50 homes were destroyed.
One resident of Mascouche, just outside of Montreal, said he's never seen a tornado nearby.
"I've never seen that in this region before. I've seen storms. We've been frozen out in the winter, but never a storm like this."
Residents emerged Tuesday morning to the sound of chainsaws, as city workers cleared out debris.
Environment Canada said the tornado traveled nearly 2 miles and reached speeds of almost 140 miles per hour.
Local media reported a 59-year-old man died after taking shelter in a shed later thrown by the tornado.
Quebec state Premier François Legault vowed on Tuesday to help the city rebuild with financial support.
