Severe thunderstorms moved into northwestern New Brunswick and the neighbouring State of Maine yesterday and one of those storm cells spawned a tornado.

U.S. National Weather Service officials say a tornado did touch down in Aroostook County, Maine near Caribou.

Environment Canada says funnel clouds may have been spotted in the Grand Falls area but the storm cell weakened by the time it reached New Brunswick.

Flash flooding was also reported in western parts of the province.

The severe weather came from a hot, humid air mass which has moved out of the region and has been replaced by cooler, drier air.
