Upgraded to an EF2 and a second tornado (EF0) added:

Weather summary
for Ontario and the National Capital Region
issued by Environment Canada
at 2:51 p.m. EDT Friday 15 June 2018.


The confirmed tornado which tracked through Haldimand and Norfolk
counties on Wednesday, June 13 has been upgraded in strength to an
EF-2 category with maximum estimated winds of 180 km/h.

In addition, a second tornado has been confirmed based on video
evidence near Norwich around 3 pm on the same day. Minimal damage
has been reported, thus it has been categorized as an EF-0.

A severe thunderstorm affected the towns of Jarvis and Waterford
near Lake Erie after 3 PM on Wednesday, June 13. Numerous trees were
uprooted or sheared apart, multiple buildings suffered shingle
damage, branches were embedded into the roof of a house, a flag pole
was snapped, a porch collapsed and several barns were destroyed.

Environment and Climate Change Canada sent a survey team to
investigate damage in this area and concluded that it was the result
of an Enhanced Fujita Scale 2 (EF2) tornado with peak winds near 180
km/h. The damage was intermittent along a path approximately 32
kilometres long and with a maximum width of 500 metres.
