A number of communities in central New Brunswick are cleaning up today after a tornado touched down last night.

Damage from strong winds was reported in the Grand Lake area including Cambridge-Narrows, Jemseg and Whites Cove.

Witnesses say a funnel cloud took shape and appears to have lifted the roof off a barn, uprooted trees and tossed around vehicles.

Environment Canada sent a team to assess the damage on 22 July and confirmed the storm was a tornado.
