Quebec Scarred From Severe Weather this Spring and Summer

Posted by on Saturday, August 26, 2017

It has been something of a terrible spring and summer in portions of Quebec.

In the latest round of severe weather, Montreal was hit by a microburst on Tuesday.

A microburst is a small downdraft that moves in a way opposite to a tornado. Microbursts are found in strong thunderstorms. There are two types of microbursts within a thunderstorm: wet microbursts and dry microbursts. They go through three stages in their cycle, the downburst, outburst, and cushion stages.

Back in April and May there was large-scale flooding that parts of Montreal experienced.

So far six tornadoes touched down in Quebec this year.
