Tornado tears across Canada

Tornado swirls in Canada

Powerful tornadoes have ripped through towns in Canada, throwing trucks into the air and destroying homes.

The town of Elie in the central Canadian province of Manitoba was hit hardest by the twisters.

15 people were left homeless and a factory that processes flour was badly damaged.

Luckily no-one was hurt but police are using sniffer dogs to make sure people aren't trapped under damaged buildings.
