Hi there ! my name is Marc and I was there, filming the tornado. I'm new on this site but I would like to send some images of my sighting. Sighting that I've made to EC and that moment ! I will try to do that today or tomorrow. The sad thing about this sighting was that this particular time I sent some pictures to ''Carl Young'' of ''Storm Chasers Team'' ''Discovery Channel''
He was a real friend and he told me on the day that he died that it looked more like a ''Tornado'' than a ''Funnel''
Sadly, I didn't have the opportunity to thank him ! :(

This was part of my video on may 29th 2013. Youtube link :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VQGi2H7HlE

Im sorry for 2 things in this video, 1st it is a bit ''shaky'' because I was doing 3 things at the time and I said in the video when I talked to Environment Canada that I was just south of Monkland but I didn't look at a map at that moment. I was on the
'' rd 900 '' goin east between St-Albert and Mosse Creek. https://www.facebook.com/marc.simeon.9?ref=tn_tnmn#!/photo.php?fbid=526678677414633&set=a.125131967569308.32170.100002175162731&type=1&theater
