People in several communities east of Oromocto, N.B. are assessing the damage after they say a tornado pushed vehicles and destroyed a garage Saturday night.

Environment Canada is investigating the possibility that a tornado hit several small communities in the Grand Lake area around 7:30 p.m.

A spokesperson from the weather centre said the first report came from a fire department in Cambridge Narrows. A dump truck, barn and vehicle were blown the length of a football field.

In Jemseg, police reported to Environment Canada that there was a possible sighting of a twister that left minor damage.

Environment Canada said New Brunswick's Emergency Measures Organization is investigating a third report in the Grand Lake area.

CBC also heard from a woman in Whites Cove who said her neighbour's barn and garage were destroyed by a tornado.

"It was wild to see what had happened with buildings destroyed and huge trees in pieces," said Carol Dixon, who has a cottage in the area.

There were no reports of injuries.
