Thunderstorms rumbled through western Saskatchewan on Tuesday afternoon and at one point Environment Canada issued tornado warnings for the west-central part of the province.

At around 5:40 p.m. CST, the weather agency said a tornado warning replaces severe thunderstorm warnings for the RM of Kindersley, which includes the town of Kindersley, Brock and Flaxcombe.

Several people posted pictures online of a tornado near D'Arcy, Sask.

A tornado warning was later issued for several other communities, including The Battlefords and Rosetown.

The warnings came as Environment Canada meteorologists tracked a severe thunderstorm travelling northeast at 20 kilometres per hour.

The agency said tornadoes, damaging winds, large hail and locally intense rainfall were all possible.
