A severe thunderstorm touched down in Winnipeg on Thursday afternoon, bringing with it heavy rain and a funnel cloud.

According to Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), the city was hit by 42 millimetres (mm) of rain, with most of it falling within an hour. This caused flooding on major thoroughfares across Winnipeg.

Along with the rain, a funnel cloud was also spotted northwest of the city; however, ECCC doesn’t believe it touched down.
