Tornado causes extensive damage to buildings at Walpole Island
This long-tracking tornado began in Eastpointe, Michigan and continued over 37km to Harsens Island where it crossed over into Ontario. It first appeared as a huge waterspout cutting across the St. Clair River onto the Canadian side.
Upon reaching the western side of Walpole Island, it damaged 15 buildings to various degrees with total damage costs estimated at $1M. After tracking 3-4km across the island, the tornado continued to the northeast for about 10km. East of Port Lambton it destroyed a barn and tore the roof off a garage before lifting off in that area.
