This tornado caused EF2 damage to rural properties near Lebanon, a small community east of Listowel. It touched down at 8:55pm and was on the ground for 5km with a path that was 50m wide. Several grain silos were tilted over and one of them destroyed, the top portion of the structure torn away. A barn also had its roof torn off and, at one property, a sailboat was picked up and deposited in a line of trees. All along the path trees were snapped and uprooted and houses suffered minor damage.

This was one of four tornadoes that touched down on August 2, 2015. The others:
