Known as “The Chesterville Tornado”; large, destructive violent tornado. Touched down in Marionville at the Russell/Stormont County Line and tracked for almost 35km ESE/SE through the then eastern Stormont and western Dundas Counties, eventually lifting off east of Osnabruck Centre. Damage path nearly 2km in width east of Chesterville, making the tornado one of the widest recorded in Canadian History.

“Its approach was heralded by a buzzing sound, and those who felt the wind say that it was as a blast from a volcano.”
