This mesmerizing, swirling tornado over Three Hills, Alberta, Canada, doesn’t look like it’s dangerous. In fact, it looks peaceful as it passes through the town.

Twenty-seven minutes after the alert was first issued, Alberta Emergency officials reported the tornado threat was over.

Some of the locals from Three Hills had watched the tornado touch down from their farms. One local said that she has never seen anything like it; the residents have seen their fair share of thunderstorms that go through, but this was a new type of scare. Three Hills RCMP Constable Ron Clarke said that no one was hurt and most of the damage was to one rural property, while the owners weren't home.
