Tornado confirmed after storm damages homes near Alonsa Friday night

RCMP confirmed to several media outlets Saturday morning that a 77-year-old man was found dead outside his home in Alonsa, Man.

Stan Asham, reeve of the Rural Municipality of Alonsa, said the damage was centred just east of Alonsa at Margaret Bruce Provincial Park, which sits on the west side of Lake Manitoba. She said the house was empty at the time and no one was hurt.

No other deaths or injuries have been reported, though multiple campers and trees had been knocked over nearby.

Environment and Climate Change Canada said the tornado hit the RM of Alonsa, about 200 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg, at about 8:50 p.m. Friday night.

Mike Russo, a meteorologist with Environment Canada, said reports of how long the storm was on the ground are still unconfirmed.

Some people reported seeing tennis ball-sized hail, up to six centimetres in diameter, Begin said. "It hit a local beach out here and we know that there was campers turned upside down and a camper on top of a vehicle".
