Monday May 17, 2021 10:39 a.m. – First hurricane of the year confirmed in Quebec, and filmed on Saturday, May 15 in Saguenay-Lac Saint-Jean.

A resident of Saint-Method in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region had the opportunity to photograph the first hurricane of the year in Quebec. This was noticed in the early afternoon, around 1:30 pm, and fortunately, no damages were reported.

Thunderstorms erupted across the region and pea-sized hail hit northern Saguenay – Lac-Saint-Jean. At Roberval we also recorded gusts of 54 km / h.

Surprisingly, this hurricane is the oldest in the past five years in Quebec, while on average the first hurricane arrives a month later in our province. Or June 10.
