Updated weather summary for Southern Ontario and the National Capital
Region issued by Environment Canada at 8:22 P.M. EDT Thursday
4 September 2014.
Sixteenth tornado of the season in Ontario added to the list.
Environment Canada has continued to investigate the occurrence of a
possible tornado in the Erin area of Wellington County around 6:30
P.M. EDT on Wednesday August 20. Based on the video evidence
available there is sufficient justification to believe that this was
likely a weak and short-lived tornado. No damage was reported in the
area and so this event has been rated as an enhanced Fujita scale
zero (efzero) tornado with winds of at least 90 kilometres per hour.
This now brings the total count of tornadoes in Ontario this year
To 16. Ontario normally verifies 12 tornadoes each year in a season
that runs from late April until early October.
