Funnel clouds in Montreal

Very stormy skies across Ile Perrot at around 8:45pm this evening.

A line of intense thunderstorms has just passed rapidly through the Montreal region from north to south across the entire island. The storm passed over Ile Perrot at around 8:45pm with very turbulent clouds moving in several directions with rotation visible. I took the above photo but it very grainy as I left the tripod in the house. Some rain accompanied the storm along with 52km/h wind gusts at Dorval. According to Environment Canada there have been reports of funnel clouds observed with these storms. They are now heading off to the south and east of Montreal towards the South Shore, Townships and northern New York and Vermont.
