Description

(Mount Forest) Witnesses described the tornado: “It possessed all the features of a western cyclone, being funnel shaped, ascending and descending in its passage over the town.” “The air was full of limbs of trees, fence rails, fruit trees, etc. During its passage it was attended with the roar like a railway train.”

(Elora) Confirmed damaging and destructive tornado. “A whirlwind passed through the village. To those watching it from a distance it appeared somewhat like the smoke of a locomotive. Those who saw the storm pass over the river say it lashed the water up several feet high.”
