June 8 damage summary :

Code:
301 
 AWCN11 CWTO 092325
 WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ALL OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO AND THE
 NATIONAL CAPITAL REGION ISSUED BY ENVIRONMENT CANADA
 AT 7:25 PM EDT THURSDAY 9 JUNE 2011.

-------------------------------------------------------------
 ==WEATHER EVENT DISCUSSION==
 AFTER RECEIVING NUMEROUS REPORTS OF DAMAGE FROM A SERIES OF
 THUNDERSTORMS THAT IMPACTED VARIOUS PARTS OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO ON
 WEDNESDAY JUNE 8TH, AN ENVIRONMENT CANADA DAMAGE SURVEY TEAM WAS
 SENT TO TWO OF THE HARDEST HIT AREAS TO TRY AND DETERMINE THE CAUSE
 OF THE DAMAGE.  THE DAMAGE SURVERY TEAM VISITED THE COBOCONK AREA TO
 THE EAST OF LAKE SIMCOE IN THE KAWARTHA LAKES REGION, AND MINDEN
 HILLS IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF HALIBURTON COUNTY.  TWO POWERFUL LINES
 OF THUNDERSTORMS MOVED THROUGH THESE AREA ON WEDNESDAY.  THE FIRST
 LINE OCCURRED BETWEEN 2 PM AND 3 PM WITH THE SECOND OCCURRING
 BETWEEN 7 PM AND 8 PM.  IT APPEARS THAT THE MAJORITY OF THE DAMAGE
 IN THE COBOCONK AND MINDEN HILLS AREAS OCCURRED WITH THE FIRST LINE
 OF ACTIVITY.  ALL OF THE DAMAGE THAT WAS SEEN WAS CONSISTENT WITH
 DOWNBURTS OR DAMAGING WINDS AND NOT TORNADOES.  SOME OF THE DAMAGE
 WAS CONSISTENT WITH PEAK WINDS IN THE ORDER OF 120 TO 140 KM/H.

THE SECOND LINE OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ALSO AFFECTED PARTS OF THE
 GREATER TORONTO AREA EARLY WEDNESDAY EVENING.  TORRENTIAL DOWNPOURS,
 STRONG WINDS, HAIL AND INTENSE LIGHTNING WERE ASSOCIATED.

DUE TO THE LARGE NUMBER OF AREAS ACROSS SOUTHERN ONTARIO THAT
 EXPERIENCED SOME FORM OF DAMAGE IN THE LAST FEW DAYS, ENVIRONMENT
 CANADA WILL CONTINUE TO INVESTIGATE OTHER SIGNIFICANT AREAS OF
 DAMAGE AND UPDATE THIS STATEMENT ACCORDINGLY.

REPORTS OF SEVERE WEATHER THAT OCCURRED ON WEDNESDAY  RECEIVED BY
 ENVIRONMENT CANADA AS OF
 7 PM THURSDAY ARE FOUND IN THE TABLE IMMEDIATELY BELOW.
