Environment Canada has confirmed Ontario's 9th tornado of the season.
At around 6:20 AM on Saturday, September 22, a line of showers and thundershowers moved through parts of eastern Ontario. Two properties were damaged in the town of Wellington, Prince Edward County.
Based on testimonial evidence, EC is confirming the damage as being caused by an F0 tornado, with wind speeds up to 110 km/h.
It touched down near the intersection of Highway 33 and Regional Road 2. The path of the damage was 60-70 metres long and 10-15 metres wide.
Damage included lawn furniture being tossed up to 50 metres away, a picnic table thrown across a property, and a heavy deck lifted off its foundation.
It is possible that the tornado formed originally as a waterspout over Lake Ontario.
