Environment Canada has confirmed that a tornado touched down in the Cabano area shortly after 2pm EDT on Friday, August 16.
Officials say this minimum strength tornado was produced by convective cells not associated with thunderstorms, and caused only minor damage.
The tornado then moved out over Lake Temiscouata at about 2:10pm EDT, creating a waterspout that lasted a few minutes before petering out.
This is the fourth confirmed tornado in Quebec this season.
