An active weather day over southwestern Ontario on Friday.

Late Friday afternoon, a thunderstorm moved from lower Michigan
across Essex County and reached Leamington near 5.40 PM. Radar and
photographs taken at that time support the occurrence of a probable
tornado in the area. There are reports of damage to solar panels and
a greenhouse.

Around 7:30 pm Friday another quickly rotating thunderstorm moving
from west to east passed over Hawkesville and continued east likely
passing just south of Elmira towards the village of Maryhill.
Photographs of the thunderstorm as well as subsequent damage photos
in the area suggest this was a second possible tornado in the
Hawkesville area. There are reports of snapped power poles and
debris in open fields. Continuous lightning was associated with this

A team is investigating the wind damage in the Hawkesville area of
Waterloo Region.
