The severe weather that stormed through the province Saturday night produced a tornado in western Manitoba.
Environment Canada confirmed a tornado touched down approximately 10-kilometres south of Roblin near Highway 83 at around 7:30 p.m. The twister hit a remote area and was down for a few minutes, uprooting a few trees along the way.
There were no reports of any injuries or damage.
Environment Canada did issue tornado warning for the areas along the Manitoba-Saskatchewan border late Saturday afternoon. Tornados were reported to have touched down of the Saskatchewan side of the border earlier in the day.
Roblin is approximately 400 km northwest of Winnipeg.
