Cone tornado cuts through town, leaves trail of snapped trees & damaged homes
As it developed over the river the tornado was caught on film and reported by storm chaser/spotter Mark Robison. He then tracked it as it moved through the community and out into open farmland. As it went it was also caught in photos and on video by stunned residents, a tapered cone that was fully condensed to the ground. It was classic in appearance, a photogenic Wizard of Oz twister that was a sight much more familiar to the plains of Tornado Alley than to Southern Ontario. Indeed, it is possible that the highly visible nature of the tornado contributed to the fact that there were no injuries despite the lack of warning.
