Default Toronto tornado - Aug. 14, 1984

I remember a very strong thunderstorm in the evening of August 14, 1984. I witnessed a funnel cloud formation at the N.E. corner of Eglington and Martingrove at around 7 p.m. It was the first funnel cloud for me. The storm ended up ripping the roof off of the Eaton's warehouse in the Weston road/Jane St. area, as well as damaging a few homes in the area. It also dumped over 200 mm of rain in two hours, so a lot of local flooding occured as well. EC issued a tornado warning that evening...it was my first year as a Severe Weather Watcher, so as soon as I found shelter, I called in to report.

Ah, memories....
