Buildings were badly damaged during the same storm.
Environment Canada investigators were at the scene on Wednesday.
"Strong winds associated with a thunder storm brought higher level winds to the surface and people in the area reported a couple of minutes of very strong violent winds," said Mitchell Meredith of Environment Canada.
Meredith believes it was likely a downburst, not a tornado, that caused this damage, but he also points out that only wind gusts of about 90 km/h could have left this kind of destruction.
The storm toppled trees, tore down branches, ripped out street signs and also damaged cars.
