Environment and Climate Change Canada has confirmed two tornadoes
near Huntsville Friday.

The first EF-1 tornado occurred on the south side of Huntsville at
3:52 PM Friday. The tornado tracked about one kilometre
northeastward over land and then for another three kilometres over
Fairy Lake as a tornadic waterspout. Damage was reported to a number
of homes and numerous trees were toppled. The width of its path is
estimated to have ranged from 50 to 120 metres with estimated wind
speeds of 130 to 150 km/h.

The second EF-2 tornado occurred approximately 15 km northeast of
Huntsville likely between 4:10 and 4:15 PM Friday. From the storm
damage survey it appears the tornado produced winds up to 190 km/h
and had a track length of nine kilometers. Currently it is believed
this tornado started near Pell Lake and moved northeastward to
Rebecca Lake then continued to Dotty Lake. The width of the damage
path is estimated to range from 100 to 200 metres. The tornado
caused extensive tree damage as well as structural damage to
cottages.
