Friday afternoon saw tornado warnings for several locations across Central Ontario. According to Environment Canada both confirmed tornados touched down near Huntsville. The first tornado touched down south of Huntsville around 3:52 pm on Friday. Meteorologists believe it registered as an EF-1, which means wind speeds clocked in between 130 and 150 km/h. It travelled for around a kilometre before dissipating. The second tornado is believed to have been an EF-2, which means wind speeds hit closer to 190km/h. The second tornado touched down northeast of Huntsville just after 4:10 pm on Friday. Environment Canada says the tornado travelled for nine kilometres along the ground from Pell to Dotty Lake. According to Environment Canada the second tornado was much more severe, and did more damage to residences and forests. It’s not ruling out the chance there were other tornados in the area during the storm. The story will be updated as Environment Canada releases more storm damage information.
