Then, it was probably the cell that hit Port Lambton. It's now near St. Thomas. My radar program only goes back so many scans. That storm was impressive as it was crossing the border, I should have taken a screen shot.

The storm wasn't rotating at the time. If you're referring to the diamond shaped marker in the cell, it's a small hail marker.

EDIT: TWN is reporting a funnel cloud was spotted by a stormline caller in Kitchener... it was probably a 'SLC'... or 'scary looking cloud'.
EDIT EDIT: I think I know what the caller was reporting, there was a lowering where moisture was being drawn into the storm out ahead of the cell, that was probably it.

That may have been the formation I seen near Stratford (headed toward Kitchener) wishing I had a camera.

ah, scud very rarely tricks me, I am sure a few people thought a tornado was forming here earlier, the scud was putting on quite a show

I know Sombra quite well, use the border crossing there a lot. Plus, my family lives in Corunna. Any way you can get up there to take photos of the damage?

I sold my car so I have no way to get there, my aunt said it wasn't a big tree, but I am guessing the winds would have at least had to have been 80 km/h right?
