This long-track tornado travelled for 35km and had a path that was 100m wide. It touched down at 1:30pm, snapping and uprooting trees, damaging and destroying barns, and tearing roofing from houses near the Valens Conservation Area.

Travelling to the southeast, the tornado struck the Lost Forest Trailer Park in Flamborough. There, one trailer was picked up, thrown and totally demolished, leaving nothing but a trail of scattered debris.

A witness captured a photograph of the tornado as it was beginning to rope out near the shore of Lake Ontario in Burlington.

This was one of three tornadoes to touch down in Southern Ontario on August 4; the others were an F1 at Clear Creek and another F1 on Hamilton Mountain.
