Witnesses observe damaging F1 tornado, a large cone, tearing through Gloucester
At 5:00 pm, the tornado touched down in a neighbourhood about 5 kilometres to the east of downtown Ottawa, and travelled for 3 kilometres along Ogilvie Road. Trees were snapped and uprooted, power poles knocked down and fences torn apart. An apartment building had most of its roof torn off, as did one nearby house, and the canopy was ripped off of a gas station and thrown 20 metres away. Witnesses reported observing a funnel cloud with debris.
