Strongest of three tornadoes in Kenora woodland leaves EF1 damage through forest
This EF1 tornado left a long track of intermittent but heavy damage through area forests. It was the strongest of three tornadoes that ripped through the remote region of Northern Ontario. The tornado was identified and documented as part of the Northern Tornadoes Flyover Project Year 1 Pilot. The study was conducted by a research team from The University of Western Ontario, in partnership with scientists from Environment Canada. This was one of several previously unknown or undocumented tornadoes that were identified through the program over the course of the 2017 storm season.
