Hydro Ottawa only serves some of the people left without power because of the tornado.

Environment Canada has yet to officially release a statement confirming that a tornado had formed, but one meteorologist with the weather agency has confirmed to media that a tornado did touch down in the Dunrobin area before heading across the Ottawa River. The winds tore the roofs from numerous large buildings, bounced large sections of metal bleachers across soccer fields, knocked over hydro poles and cracked thick trees like twigs.

A dormer that was torn from a home's roof by a tornado is seen in Dunrobin, Ontario, Canada west of Ottawa, on Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018.

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson said the destruction from the twister looked like "some bomb was dropped from the air". Fluffy, pink insulation - sucked out of ravaged homes - covered the neighbourhood.

Officials warned people not to re-enter their homes until they had been deemed safe as firefighters went door-to-door to determine whether structures were still sound.

Frightening footage has been recorded of a tornado as it tore through a city in Canada.

Wesley Hoedt's unfortunate own goal spurred the hosts into life, with Joel Matip's excellent header doubling their advantage. Substitutes: Milner (6), Gomez (6), Keita (5). "And it was a great feeling to score my first goal here at Anfield".

More than 145,000 customers were without power in the city on Saturday morning as a result of damage that Hydro Ottawa CEO Bryce Conrad said was as bad or worse than that caused by a devastating ice storm in 1998.

Power in the area has also been affected with around 167,000 Hydro One customers who were without electricity late Friday evening.

Ford also met residents who have taken refuge at a local high school, and praised the work of volunteers helping them.

Finally, I want to thank my fellow caucus members Merrilee Fullerton, Lisa MacLeod, Steve Clark, Goldie Ghamari and Jeremy Roberts for keeping in touch with me around the clock, and giving me a real sense of what the people of the Ottawa region are facing as the recovery effort gets underway.

Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard broke off campaigning ahead of an Oct 1 provincial election to travel to Gatineau.

"It's so surprising and awful to see the disaster the way it struck the homes", Couillard said as he toured Pontiac, Que.
