Environment Canada confirms two tornadoes touched down”

Environment Canada has confirmed that two tornadoes touched down in southwestern Ontario Friday evening, downing power lines and destroying farm properties across the region.

A screen capture from a video shot by Kaily Zack shows the funnel cloud beginning of a tornado in Wheatley, Aug. 11, 2017.

Meteorologist Rob Kuhn says the agency is looking into what it calls a "probable tornado" in Leamington after photos of a funnel cloud surfaced online.

Environment Canada also has confirmed that there was localized flooding in north Waterloo.

The tornado moved from west to east across Hawksville then to just south of Elmira and then toward the village of Maryhill.

Kuhn says there's a definite possibility that both Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent could see more tornadoes this summer.

The two tornadoes touched down in Leamington, Ont., a community about 350 kilometres southwest of Toronto, and the area of Hawkesville, Ont., near Kitchener. "[There were] no reports of any further damage in any other area", says Kuhn.

Next door to his brother's home on North Talbot Road, greenhouses at Thiessen Apple Orchard were damaged as well. "I can't tell you how long it will be to get that cleaned up".

He says that the extent of the damage suggests the weather in Hawkesville was more serious than that in Leamington.

The two tornadoes bring the count this year up to nine in southwestern Ontario.
