EF0 tornado spins up east of Bailieboro near Rice Lake, damages farm & forest
This tornado spun up east of Bailieboro, to the west of Rice Lake, at around 7:30pm as a line of severe storms cut through Central Ontario. It immediately struck a farm near Pengelly Landing and damaged small outbuildings, fences and trees, and peeled roofing off of a barn. From there the tornado tracked to the northeast, snapping and uprooting trees for approximately 2km. Storm chaser Jay Callaghan captured close-range video of the rain-wrapped tornado as it sheered the tops off of trees at the edge of an adjacent field.

Not the best video but there was spin up over field near left side of the group of bushes.
I had to end video abruptly as power lines above were of concern.
