F2 tornado strikes & devastates farm, tears apart farmhouse & barn, kills cattle
This tornado touched down at around 3:30pm near Carp, causing extensive damage at area farms. At one that was particularly hard hit, a farmhouse was left pockmarked by flying debris and had windows smashed and large sections of its roof torn off. A neighbouring barn also had portions of its roof ripped off before the structure collapsed entirely. A number of cattle were killed before the tornado reached the Ottawa River. Damage totalled over $2,000,000.
This was one of two tornadoes to touch down in Eastern Ontario on August 4; the other was an F1 at Alexandria. A third tornado also touched down just east of there at Aylmer, Quebec. This more powerful twister was an F3 that damaged and destroyed hundreds of homes through the town.
