Environment and Climate Change Canada confirms tornado in Haldimand
and Norfolk counties on Wednesday, June 13.

A severe thunderstorm affected the towns of Jarvis and Waterford
near Lake Erie after 3 PM on Wednesday, June 13. Numerous trees were
uprooted or sheared apart, multiple buildings suffered shingle
damage, branches were embedded into the roof of a house, a flag pole
was snapped, a porch collapsed and several barns were destroyed.
Environment and Climate Change Canada sent a survey team to
investigate damage in this area and concluded that it was the result
of an Enhanced Fujita Scale 1 (EF1) tornado with peak winds near 160
km/h. The damage was intermittent along a path approximately 30
kilometres long and with a maximum width of 600 metres.
