Discussion.

A storm damage team has confirmed that a tornado touched down near
Stayner, Ontario on Monday afternoon around 4 PM, resulting in
damage that included uprooted trees and an overturned trailer. The
strength of the tornado was determined to be EF-1 on the Enhanced
Fujita scale.

Damage from other communities in the area including Collingwood
where a roof was removed from an industrial building was determined
to be the result of a downburst.

Ontario has had 11 tornadoes so far this year. Ontario averages 12
tornadoes per year in a season that typically runs from late April
until October.
