Glad I saw this and checked the radar loop - some tstorms heading my way across the lake shore right now! Not strong (30k tops), but any tstorm is better than THIS weather.

There was some rotation in a storm over Kitchener today. Sort of hanging clouds, but nothing funnel shaped. Was really cool, till I got the crap scared out of me by a close lightning bolt. Others on the OTW FB page saw it too and it also appeared to be rotating. The page itself noted rotation in the storm before it hit.

You tried posting here? (I'm trying to find out if there's an error with the site)

Here's the details from Environment Canada...

Quote:
Weather summary
for Ontario and the National Capital Region
updated by Environment Canada
at 4:22 p.m. EDT Friday 12 August 2016.

Discussion.

Fourth tornado of the season confirmed.

At 12:30 p.m. EDT Thursday afternoon an Enhanced Fujita Scale Zero
tornado occurred in Delaware, 10 kilometres southwest of London.
This is the weakest rating on the Enhanced Fujita Scale.

A damage survey team of engineers from Western University found that
four properties were affected. Some siding was removed from two
houses, a glass railing was broken and blown around the corner of a
house, a play structure was moved from one yard to another with the
trees between untouched, and a swirling pattern was observed in a
cornfield. Peak winds were estimated at 90 kilometres per hour.

The damage path was approximately 50 metres long and 10 metres wide.

Ontario has had four tornadoes confirmed so far this year. Ontario
averages 12 tornadoes each year in a season that runs from late
April until early October.

information and does not constitute a complete or final report.

EC summary, posted by OTW FB page:

"Location:
Swift Rapids, Ontario.
Event Description:
Strong to severe thunderstorms affected parts of Central and Eastern Ontario on Friday, July 1st. A previous investigation allowed Environment Canada to confirm the second tornado of the season, in Ontario, over Buckhorn Lake north of Peterborough. Further damage areas from Sunderland to Lindsay were attributed to downbursts.
A more recent investigation has centered on funnel cloud reports
received near Swift Rapids, southwest of Gravenhurst. Eyewitnesses report seeing a funnel cloud in the area at approximately 3:30 PM on July 1st and there was video evidence. The on-site investigation confirmed a narrow damage path about 30 metres wide, along the lakeshore. This permits Environment Canada to confirm the third tornado of the season in Ontario, which is being ranked as a EF-0 (Enhanced Fujita Scale zero) tornado, with estimated winds less than 120 kilometres per hour.
Environment Canada encourages anyone with further information
including pictures and videos to send them to [email address] or tweet reports to #onstorm.
Please note that this summary may contain preliminary or unofficial
information and does not constitute a complete or final report.
End/OSPC"
