MICROBURST EVENT CONFIRMED IN AMHERSTBURG AREA

-------------------------------------------------------------
 ==WEATHER EVENT DISCUSSION==

THE DAMAGE THAT OCCURRED IN A CAMPGROUND TO THE EAST OF AMHERSTBURG
 AROUND 10:50 PM ON WEDNESDAY JUNE 23 HAS BEEN DETERMINED TO HAVE BEEN
 CAUSED BY A MICROBURST WHICH IS A VERY LOCALIZED GUST OF DAMAGING
 WINDS. THE DAMAGE TO THE CAMPGROUND INCLUDED A CAMPER TRAILER FLIPPED
 OVER AND A LARGE TENT AND SMALL SHEDS BEING SEVERELY DAMAGED. THE
 DAMAGE OCCURRED IN A LOCALIZED AREA APPROXIMATELY 60 METRES WIDE BY
 600 METRES LONG. BASED ON THE TYPE OF DAMAGE THAT OCCURRED THE WINDS
 WERE ESTIMATED TO BE BETWEEN 120 AND 140 KM/H WHICH IS THE LOWER END
 OF THE FUJITA ONE RANGE. THE FUJITA SCALE USES DAMAGE TO ESTIMATE THE
 STRENGTH OF WINDS IN TORNADOES AND SEVERE WIND GUSTS AND GOES FROM
 ZERO (WEAKEST) TO FIVE (STRONGEST).

ENVIRONMENT CANADA EARLIER CONFIRMED THAT A FUJITA SCALE 2 TORNADO
 (PEAK WINDS BETWEEN 180 AND 240 KM/H) OCCURRED IN THE MIDLAND AREA
 AROUND 6:30 PM WEDNESDAY EVENING. THE TORNADO BEGAN IN THE ROWNTREE
 BEACH AREA WEST OF MIDLAND AND ENDED JUST WEST OF WAUBAUSHENE FOR A
 TOTAL LENGTH OF APPROXIMATELY 25 KM. THE MAXIMUM WIDTH OF DAMAGE WAS
 AROUND 300 METRES. THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE NOTED WITH THIS
 TORNADO WAS NUMEROUS MOBILE HOMES SEVERELY DAMAGED OR DESTROYED IN A
 TRAILER PARK AT THE SOUTH END OF THE TOWN OF MIDLAND. DAMAGE OUTSIDE
 OF THE MIDLAND AREA WAS INTERMITTENT.

A SECOND TORNADO SPAWNED FROM THE SAME THUNDERSTORM THAT MOVED OVER
 THE MIDLAND AREA OCCURRED AT APPROXIMATELY 7:00 PM. THIS TORNADO
 BEGAN AROUND THE MAPLE VALLEY AREA APPROXIMATELY 10 KM WEST OF
 WASHAGO AND ENDED JUST EAST OF WASHAGO. THIS TORNADO WAS RATED AS A
 FUJITA SCALE ONE TORNADO (PEAK WINDS BETWEEN 120 AND 170 KM/H). THE
 TOTAL LENGTH OF THE DAMAGE WAS APPROXIMATELY 12 KM BUT WAS
 INTERMITTENT IN NATURE. THE MAXIMUM WIDTH WAS APPROXIMATELY 60
 METRES. THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE FROM THIS TORNADO WAS TO FARM
 BUILDINGS (I.E. A BARN AND SILO) AND A GARAGE.

WITH THE CONFIRMATION OF TWO TORNADOES FROM WEDNESDAY EVENING, THE
 TOTAL COUNT OF TORNADOES FOR THIS YEAR SO FAR IN ONTARIO STANDS AT
 FOUR. ONTARIO NORMALLY GETS AROUND 11 TORNADOES EACH SEASON WITH THE
 SUMMER SEVERE WEATHER SEASON BEGINNING IN LATE APRIL AND ENDING IN
 EARLY OCTOBER.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SUMMARY CONTAINS THE OBSERVATIONS AT THE TIME
 OF BROADCAST AND DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFICIAL AND FINAL REPORT OF
 THE WEATHER EVENTS OR THE HIGH IMPACT EVENTS ATTRIBUTED TO THE
