UPDATE: Storm hits Saskatoon
Environment Canada has ended the tornado watch and severe thunderstorm warning for Saskatoon but severe weather continues to loom over the city.
In the Nutana area, News Talk Radio's Bre McAdam says the rain has dissipated but there's heavy lightning and thunder.
Callers are also saying in the 22nd Street West and Whitney Avenue North area there is flooding on the roads. Continuing west on 22nd Street West, News Talk Radio's Kelly Malone says traffic is "chaotic" and there are police vehicles out on the road.
On Highway 16, towards the east, News Talk Radio's Ashley Wills says she's seeing "intense" strikes of lightning. "I'm about two kilometres past Clavet and the weather is unpredicatable," says Wils, adding that she sees a "green tinge" in the sky.
Crystal Shindle, an employee at a hotel in Clavet, says the rain has been "off and on" for the past half hour and lightening has knocked out their power a couple of times.
Earlier, callers reported power outages in the west and north sides of the city; and near Highway 11, past Martensville.
Tyler Hopson with SaskPower says the outages were caused by a power pole which caught on fire.
"We do have a crew on site, fixing things as quickly as they can."
Hopson says there's no exact timelime for when the power will return, but expects it should be up and running within a couple of hours.
Unconfirmed twister sighting in Moose Jaw
In Moose Jaw, an unconfirmed tornado has been sighted. JC Tremblay, a farmer in the area, says one touched down on his fields earlier today.
"It was just like you see in all the video shots. The big funnel just came down out of the cloud and it went up and down, up and down, and then it just came right now down and hit the ground."
Tremblay says about 10 miles east of from the tornado sighting, he saw power poles yanked out of the ground and smashed to pieces.
"(The twister) must have touched down again under a powerline and right across the grid road," says Tremblay, adding that the poles look like "toothpicks."
