Jun.22, 2015, 21:40 - EF0 - Holmesville (SE of Goderich) : There were storm spotter reports of a possible tornado in this area at the time. Subsequent investigation has shown that some minor building, tree And vehicle damage occurred in the same area where the storm spotter reports indicated the possible tornado. An exact track of this event could not be determined. However, given that the damage involved objects that were moved in different directions and some irt and leaf splatter was reported from this event, it is likely it was caused by a tornado. Given the relatively minor nature of the damage, this tornado has been rated as an Enhanced Fujita scale zero (efzero) tornado with peak winds between 90 and 130 kilometres per hour.

Aug.2, 2015, ??:?? - EF1 -MILLGROVE (NW of Hamilton): NOW FURTHER INVESTIGATION HAS YIELDED A FOURTH THAT OCCURRED IN THE MILLGROVE AREA, NORTHWEST OF HAMILTON, AT APPROXIMATELY 10 PM ON AUGUST 2ND. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION PROVIDED BY A STORM SPOTTER CONCERNING THE DAMAGE IN THE MILLGROVE AREA INDICATED A RELATIVELY NARROW PATH OF DAMAGE ABOUT 200 METRES WIDE AND 1.7 KILOMETRES LONG. THE DAMAGE CONSISTED OF TREE AND ROOF DAMAGE WITH SOME OF THE DAMAGE LYING IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS. THE DAMAGE WAS CONSISTENT WITH AN ENHANCED FUJITA SCALE ONE (EF1) TORNADO WITH PEAK WINDS BETWEEN 35 AND 175 KILOMETRES PER HOUR.

Oct.15, 2015, ??:?? - EF0 - Coniston (east of Sudbury): A cold air mass was forecast to descend southward across the Great Lakes, driven by an upper-atmosphere disturbance coming from Manitoba. In advance of the cold air outbreak, a few thunderstorms developed across southern and central Ontario on October 15. One of them triggered a funnel cloud over Coniston, just east of Sudbury, which was captured on camera. It has since been determined that this funnel cloud was linked to surface winds independently reported by another observer, therefore Environment Canada is confirming the seventh tornado of the 2015 season in Ontario. This one was an Enhanced Fujita scale zero tornado, likely with maximum winds near 115 km/h. Minimal damage was reported.
