F1 tornado touches down in NW Toronto, snaps trees & tears apart Sears building
This tornado was small and brief, estimated only to be between 10m and 30m wide, and with a path of 500m. It touched down at 6:15pm, shredding trees and striking a Sears building in an industrial area. The large warehouse had areas of its roof peeled off and punctured with holes, and damage was estimated to be over $1,000,000. Metal and debris from the building were thrown over 1km away into a cemetery. The tornado was witnessed by a local firefighter who described a cone funnel with a plume of swirling debris.
