Default Re: August 24 -SW ON

Deffenitley an insane day yesterday. I rode around looking for storm damage and it consits of like small to big branches of trees. Leaves everywhere. Even the odd tree down. Damage isnt significant and I did ride up to the storm damage in Burlington.

EDIT: Looks like a tornado didnt hit burlington. Seems the tornado ended west of there near westover just WSW of flamborough

Code:

AWCN11 CWTO 252224
WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ALL OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO AND THE
NATIONAL CAPITAL REGION ISSUED BY ENVIRONMENT CANADA
AT 6:24 PM EDT THURSDAY 25 AUGUST 2011.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------
==WEATHER EVENT DISCUSSION==
 
ENVIRONMENT CANADA CONFIRMS THE SIXTH TORNADO OF THE SEASON.
 
A LINE OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS AFFECTED MUCH OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT, ASSOCIATED WITH A SHARP
COLD FRONT. CONDITIONS WERE FAVOURABLE FOR THE FORMATION OF
TORNADOES, AND SEVERAL WALL CLOUDS AND FUNNEL CLOUDS WERE REPORTED.
NO INJURIES OR FATALITIES HAVE BEEN REPORTED.
 
AN ENVIRONMENT CANADA DAMAGE SURVEY TEAM HAS CONFIRMED THAT A FUJITA
SCALE ONE (F1) TORNADO WITH PEAK WINDS BETWEEN 120 AND 170 KM/H
OCCURRED WEDNESDAY EVENING IN AN AREA BETWEEN CABRIDGE AND
BURLINGTON. THE TRACK WAS FOUND TO BEGIN NEAR LITTLE'S CORNERS AND
END NEAR WESTOVER, WITH THE GREATEST DAMAGE IN KIRKWALL. THE TOTAL
DAMAGE TRACK WAS APPROXIMATELY 15 KILOMETRES LONG AND MAXIMUM 300
METRES WIDE. THE DAMAGE RATING WAS BASED ON TREE DAMAGE NOTED ALONG
THE DAMAGE TRACK. OTHER SPORADIC TREE DAMAGE WAS NOTED IN THE
VICINITY OF THIS TRACK BUT IS BELIEVED THIS DAMAGE WAS DUE TO
STRAIGHT LINE WINDS AND NOT A TORNADO.
 
ENVIRONMENT CANADA WILL CONTINUE TO INVESTIGATE THE NUMEROUS ACCOUNTS
OF SEVERE WEATHER FROM ACROSS SOUTHWESTERN AND SOUTHCENTRAL ONTARIO
THAT OCCURRED WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THIS SUMMARY WILL BE

Just outside downtown Kitchener sometime around 9pm. Shot with my little point and shoot camera.

Too bad that one lightning bolt was on the other side of the house.

Here are the first few so far. Will do more tonight. If anyone wants other areas let me know. Looking at the data I was hit by some pretty strong winds and probable rotation associated along the line. Also note the rotation where the tornado touched down in western sections of hamilton
