Had an awesome storm chase with my chase partner yesterday. We set up in Southern Region of Waterloo during the early afternoon. Was hesitant to go north like all of the other chasers had. Turns out either decision would have been okay, but I'm very glad I made the decision to have the south option and be somewhat close to home (which turned out to be hit extremely hard). We saw the squall line organizing as it pushed off of Lake Huron so we decided to head north to the Region of Waterloo Airport, we then decided that we would drop back south into Southern Region of Waterloo/far Western City of Hamilton for the chance that the Southern end of the squall line would continue to strengthen. The initial bow passed over us just outside of Cambridge and produced winds of around 90km/h breaking many tree limbs. We then decided to head south toward Highway 52/Jerseyville Road area in the City of Hamilton for the organizing storms on the southern end of the bow. This turned out to be a great decision. The storm was actually tornado warned by Environment Canada and as it passed over us we experienced winds in excess of 110km/h that laid trees onto homes and flattened corn fields in the area. This storm produced a fair amount of damage west of Highway 52 between Jerseyville Road and Wilson Street in Ancaster. We then decided to go back to my house which is about 15 minutes from where we were located. We arrived there and noticed another well organized squall line continuing to strengthen just to our west and decided to head to a local park a couple of kilometres west of my house. This is where I experienced by far the strongest winds ever. This thunderstorm produced winds likely well in excess of 120km/h and caused extensive damage to my neighbourhood including my property. Tons of trees snapped/uprooted in the area with even more trees just shredded apart. Trees fell on power lines snapping the power poles so 1 block over the power has been out since yesterday at 8pm. Trees also fell on homes, garages, and cars through out the area. We cleared the trees in my yard today, but many roads are still blocked in the area and many people are still without power. The winds were so powerful that a carport two doors down from my home was sheared off the side of the house and smashed into the owners car and then pinned up against the next house. Fibreglass insulation was also found in my neighbours yard. Here is a video of the storm in my neighbourhood, I am working on video for the 3 other severe storms that we experienced on Friday, and am also working on editing all the damage photos so they can be uploaded to Flickr. The severe storm at 930pm produced 100km/h winds at my location and added to the damage from the earlier storm, CYHM recorded a gust of 106km/h with this storm. The storm was also at night so the lightning was incredible. The intensity, frequency, and close proximity of the CG strikes was insane to say the least. As OntarioWX posted, this was only comparable to August 24th 2011.
Timeline of severe storms:
530 PM: Southern RoW storm with 90km/h winds.
630 PM: Ancaster storm with winds over 110km/h
800 PM: Western Hamilton storm with winds well over 120km/h
930 PM: Western Hamilton storm with 100km/h winds and constant lightning


Be sure to watch the whole video.

There were a few anvil crawlers but the only one I managed to get was only part of the bolts, and on video. Here's some screen captures.

Hopefully this is the last/final weather summary EC issues. I've been getting them throughout the day, every day, since the storm finished:

Code:
414 
 AWCN11 CWTO 220830
 WEATHER SUMMARY FOR ALL OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO AND THE
 NATIONAL CAPITAL REGION ISSUED BY ENVIRONMENT CANADA
 AT 4:30 AM EDT MONDAY 22 JULY 2013.

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

A HOT AND HUMID AIR MASS AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT PROVIDED THE PERFECT
 COMBINATION TO SET OFF SEVERE THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY ACROSS CENTRAL
 AND SOUTHERN ONTARIO FRIDAY. THE SEVERE WEATHER BECAME EXTENSIVE
 DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS RESULTING IN THE BIGGEST
 SEVERE WEATHER OUTBREAK OF THE SEASON.  AN EXCEPTIONALLY LARGE AREA
 WAS AFFECTED, FROM WINDSOR TO OTTAWA AND FROM LAKE ERIE TO NORTH  BAY.

FRIDAY MORNING, THUNDERSTORMS GAVE SEVERE WIND DAMAGE TO CALLANDER
 (NEAR NORTH BAY) RESULTING IN THE DECLARATION OF A STATE OF
 EMERGENCY FOR THE TOWN.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUED TO DEVELOP EASTWARD AND SOUTHWARD. IN
 THE EARLY AFTERNOON, STORMS PRODUCED A SWATH OF DAMAGE FROM
 PEMBROOKE TO PETAWAWA WHERE CARS WERE FLIPPED OVER, ROOFS BLOWN
 DOWN, TREES UPROOTED, STREET LIGHTS SNAPPED, AND TRAILERS
 OVERTURNED.  BY LATE AFTERNOON, WIND DAMAGE WAS REPORTED IN DOZENS
 OF COMMUNITIES IN A BROAD SWATH FROM LAKE HURON AND GEORGIAN BAY
 THROUGH TO EASTERN ONTARIO.

THE SEVERE STORMS DEVELOPED SOUTHWARD DURING THE EVENING HOURS,
 CAUSING WIND DAMAGE IN THE GOLDEN HORSESHOE AND IN SOUTHWESTERN
 ONTARIO.  FLOODING AND DOWNED TREES WERE REPORTED IN NIAGARA
 FALLS WITH RAINFALL ESTIMATED AT 75 TO 100 MM.  150 MM WAS REPORTED
 TO HAVE FALLEN AT RONDEAU BAY.

2 MINOR INJURIES WERE REPORTED IN CHATHAM LATE FRIDAY EVENING WHEN A
 TREE FELL ON A CAR WITH THE PEOPLE IN IT.

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF RESIDENTS WERE LEFT WITHOUT POWER FOLLOWING
 THE STORMS. AS OF SUNDAY MORNING, APPROXIMATELY 50,000 HOMES
 REMAINED WITHOUT POWER.

ENVIRONMENT CANADA STORM DAMAGE TEAMS HAVE INVESTIGATED DAMAGE IN
 BARRIE, ORILLIA, GRAVENHURST, HAMILTON, PETAWAWA, CALLANDER AND
 DUFFERIN COUNTY. THE MOST SEVERE DAMAGE WAS FOUND NEAR
 HONEYWOOD, IN DUFFERN COUNTY, WHERE ESTIMATED WINDS OF 150 KM/HR
 DESTROYED A CATTLE BARN AND THREW THE ROOF 300 METRES.  THIS DAMAGE
 RATES EF1 ON THE  ENHANCED FUJITA SCALE.  EVIDENCE THUS FAR
 INDICATES THAT THE STORM DAMAGE IN ONTARIO HAS BEEN DONE BY STRAIGHT
 LINE DOWNBURST WINDS.

 ENVIRONMENT CANADA HAS RECEIVED AS OF 7:00 PM SUNDAY.
