The skies lit up over southern Manitoba Thursday night as a lightning storm dropped hail the size of softballs in some areas, caused power outages and whipped up a tornado that touched down in the southwest corner of the province.

Environment Canada confirmed a tornado touched down near Waskada, 280 kilometres southwest of Winnipeg and just north of the U.S. border, in the evening. No damage was reported.
