    A tornado was spotted near the village of Beiseker, Alta., on Sunday afternoon, and a portion of southern Alberta was put under a tornado watch that has since been lifted.

    Environment Canada confirmed it was monitoring a tornado and meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm that is producing it in the Irricana, Beiseker and Kathryn areas.

    As of 4:44 p.m., the tornado was about 15 kilometres southeast of Beiseker, according to Environment Canada, and was moving east at 20 km/h.

    The areas in Rocky Mountain County near Irricana, Beiseker and Kathyrn as well as in Wheatland County near Rockyford and Rosebud were placed under a tornado watch, but it was downgraded to a severe thunderstorm watch at 5:21 p.m.

    It’s recommended shelter is taken in an indoor room on the lowest floor of your home, away from outside walls and windows, such as a basement or stairwell.

    As a last resort, lie in a low spot and protect your head from flying debris.
