Five of the six people taken to hospital overnight, due to injuries, were from the Dunrobin area. Charlie's family members have since been in contact with Day over social media.

The terrified woman was lucky to avoid injury as she took a severe hit from the tornado, with winds tearing through her auto, smashing her windows and leaving her with cuts and bruises on her face.

The powerful tornado, with winds between 220 and 270 km/h, was the force behind the damage, Peter Kimbell from Environment Canada said.

"The debris was flying everywhere, I had never see anything like it except in Hollywood", the 30-year-old, from Gatineau's Mont-Bleu neighborhood said, adding he saw sofas and freezers that had been blown into the street.
