Two cyclone-shaped waterspouts formed off the island of Montreal
Wednesday, giving residents a rare look at a weather phenomenon more
common to the tropics.

The first was spotted early afternoon in the St. Lawrence River, near Montreal’s south shore.

Environment Canada says a second waterspout formed around the same time about 70 kilometres northeast of Montreal.

No injuries or damage were reported in either incident.

Waterspouts are columns of vapour that form between a cloud and the earth. They are considered low-level tornadoes.

Environment Canada says it is extremely unusual for them to be see around the Montreal area.
