After the storm passed, I actually heard this random whistling sound and then the wind picked up just a little to about 40 km/h or so I'd say. The first thing that came to my mind was tornado.
Radar showed a tornado moving from western Kitchener SE through Cambridge towards Flamborough. Lots of damage reports on the scanner from south Kitchener. And, I'm in Waterloo.


Still unbelievable lightning.

My condo just got hit by lightning and it was the most unique sound i've ever heard. I could pretty much feel the air expand and my ears popped. It sounded like a giant bubble popping followed by the loudest bang i've ever heard.

Apparently CityTV is now reporting that a train was derailed in Burlington. Sources are friends and social networking sites.
