Videos from YouTube of the August 31st Damaging Hailfest and Weak Tornadoes

EDIT: Many videos have been taken down by YouTube, text remains but some of these are old broken links. 

I have gone through YouTube and made a list of all the videos with significant footage of the historic August 31, 2021 Storm the hit the city of Regina. This was the closest we have come yet to capturing the return of "Regina Cyclone 2.0" Please excuse the video thumbnails, for they are hilarious but quite fake. The footage inside the videos is real, I have reviewed it all. Each of these video shows a different angle of this epic storm.

Apocalypse of Stones in Canada! 🚨 Hailstorm struck Regina, Saskatchewan


This video shows a funnel with dust coming up of the ground which usually is enough to confirm an EF0 tornado. Tornado starts at 1:12 in the video. Travel With Costy's YouTube Channel:


Another weak funnel can be seen crossing over downtown from the CBC sky camera. Tornado / funnel starts at 0:25 in the video. Recommend slowing down the frames in the options on YouTube.

Real close to a tornado, mostly funnel. Amazing view from right under the cloud I was filming much further back on the lake. From Brandon Mazenc's YouTube channel:

Looks like another weak funnel / tornado at 4:16 on Shear WX Severe Weather Chasers YouTube channel:

Possibly the closest footage by chasers of rotation trying to turn into a tornado. Also, check out the tight funnel at 7:01 nearly a tornado right in front of them. Credit Manitoba Storm Chasers YouTube Channel:

Craig Boehm had another close view:

I can't possibly post every video on YouTube here so here is a list of videos I made which eventually be part of the movie in the making Regina Cyclone 2.0

NOTE: I kinda rushed this post due to prep for thunderstorms right after work tomorrow! Non-zero tornado risk again after 3pm.
