Description

The eighth deadliest tornado in Canadian history and fourth in Ontario. Very strong tornado spawned by particularly intense storm as part of a squall/derecho event. A number of witnesses saw the storm and tornado approaching. Some houses were destroyed down to their foundations. This is likely F4 type damage although was not confirmed by EC. (report by Dave Sills?) Most of the deaths were attributed to vehicles interacting with tornadic winds.
