Tornado cuts wide swath, destroys forest and damages property in the Melduf area
A shed was thrown and 100s of trees were snapped and uprooted when the tornado touched down at 5:30 pm. It was on the ground for 3 kilometres and had a width of 400 metres.
This was one of three tornadoes to touch down in South Central Ontario on July 17, 2000. One of the others, a probable F0 tornado at Beeton, was reported by area residents but caused no damage. And the other, an F2 tornado that struck Guelph, tore through residential neighborhoods on the south side of the city, damaging hundreds of houses and causing millions in damage.
