This storm chase granted me a brief view of the strongest recorded land spout tornado in Ontario rated F2. It wound up cutting a clean path through a house with the homeowner inside unaware and lucky to not suffer any significant injury. I left London around noon the updraft that eventually dropped the tube was over top of me as the chase began but I kept hanging back deciding what to do. When I realized the dominant area and approached the tornado was dissipating but still spinning debris at its base. As I snapped a couple pics it disappeared

Not realizing an tornado is in progress because of the haze and the small size of the tube a wall cloud with a wild rfd was in progress. I

It dissipated soon after and I got closer to ther updraft that dropped it and watched it slowly die. it seemed like it wanted to drop another and apparently did soon after I left it dropping an f1...... Oh well but still a good day
