Wessels said that the tornado was actually much further away than it appears in the photo and was moving away from them.

Cecilia Wessels snapped a picture of her husband mowing the lawn as the massive funnel cloud spun behind him in the background, the Canadian Press reported.

While there was property damage in the area, there are no reports of injuries from the tornado.

"It started to hail a little, and the wind really picked up, but that's expected with a tornado". Cecilia Wessels, who took the image of her husband to show the tornado to her parents in South Africa, said that the twister wasn't as close it appears.

The tornado struck the town of Three Hills in Alberta on Friday evening (local time) but is not thought to have killed anyone.

"Our whole street, everyone was on their back patios taking pictures", she added.

Environment Canada says a tornado touched down southeast of Edmonton, Alberta. Residents said it headed further north quickly and the skies cleared immediately after. "I called and told her to take the grandkids into the basement‚" Neudorf said in the video's description. The Alberta twister was doing around 50 miles per hour and had the potential for destruction but its path may have saved property in the area.

She said the storm passed quickly.
