PHOTOS: Twisters touch down in Saskatchewan
Tornado warnings and watches were in effect for parts of western and central Saskatchewan on Friday.
So far there have been no reports of damage and all tornado warnings have been downgraded to severe thunderstorm warnings.
Earlier, twisters and funnel clouds were spotted near the Town of Biggar, Wilkie and Unity.
Severe weather specialist John Paul Cragg with Environment Canada said there were about four cells that were moving up towards Unity, about 200 kilometers west of Saskatoon.
There’s not a lot of “juice on these storms but it’s enough to cause small tornadoes,” said Cragg.
Juanita Dueck who lives in Unity said she saw two funnel clouds forming.
"I'm watching a funnel right now,"said Dueck, shortly before 2 p.m. "It's right to the southeast of the northeast terminal and it's actually lengthening," she said.
Earlier, a twister was spotted near Compeer on the Alberta border northwest of Kindersley, Sask.
This came while tornado watches were upgraded to warnings in the west central part of Saskatchewan. Click here to see Environment Canada's weather warnings page.
Weather watches pictured in yellow mean that the conditions are right for a storm to develop. Warnings in red regions show where severe weather is either already happening or will happen soon.
What to do if a tornado touches down?
If a twister does touch down, the City of Saskatoon's Emergency Measures Organization (EMO) advises residents to be vigilant.
"People should take some precautionary measures," said EMO coordinator Ray Unrau. "Know how to get a hold of your kids and understand that in a couple of hours you might be driving."
Unrau added that if a twister lands while in a car, to vacate the vehicle and find a ditch; and if inside a building, Unrau said to stay away from windows and doors.
"You need to find a secure place, preferably in the basement but if you don't have a basement, then on the interior of the building."
