Default June 7th

The dog just woke us up to the intense storm outside. Not too windy or rainy here in Mississauga this morning, but the lightning is frequent and close. Looks like Sarnia - London is having an early wakeup too.

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

AN INTENSE LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS MOVED ACROSS SOUTHERN ONTARIO
 OVERNIGHT INTO EARLY THIS MORNING. IT WAS ACCOMPANIED BY REPORTS OF
 STRONG DAMAGING WIND GUSTS, LARGE HAIL AS WELL AS NEARLY CONTINUOUS
 INTENSE LIGHTNING IN SOME AREAS. THE CANADIAN LIGHTNING DETECTION
 NETWORK IDENTIFIED AN IMPRESSIVE 80,000 FLASHES OF LIGHTNING OVER
 SOUTHERN ONTARIO WITH THIS STORM.

FOLLOWING ARE SOME OF THE REPORTS OF SEVERE WEATHER RECEIVED BY
 ENVIRONMENT CANADA.

TIME                LOCATION                EVENT

6:35 AM             CHATHAM                 2 CM HAIL

THE FOLLOWING IS A REPEATED MESSAGE REGARDING THE RESULTS OF THE
 JUNE 6TH DAMAGE SURVEY...

AN ENVIRONMENT CANADA STORM DAMAGE SURVEY TEAM HAS COMPLETED AN
 INVESTIGATION OF THE DAMAGE FROM A SERIES OF STORMS WHICH AFFECTED
 AREAS TO THE EAST OF LAKE HURON ON THE MORNING OF SATURDAY JUNE 4.
 THE STORMS WERE PARTICULARLY SEVERE AROUND MID MORNING AS THEY
 TRACKED SOUTHEAST FROM PORT ELGIN. THE SURVEY TEAM FOUND ISOLATED
 DOWNED TREES IN A BROAD SWATH ROUGHLY 35 KM LONG AND LOCALLY 5 KM
 WIDE FROM NORTH BRUCE (SOUTH OF PORT ELGIN) TO NEAR SCONE (JUST
 SOUTHEAST OF CHESLEY). LOCALES AROUND THE TOWN OF CHESLEY (ABOUT 30
 KM SOUTHEAST OF PORT ELGIN) SUSTAINED THE MOST DAMAGE WHERE A FEW
 BARNS (JUST NORTH OF CHESLEY) WERE SEVERELY DAMAGED. THE DAMAGE
 CONSISTED OF PARTIAL ROOFS LIFTED OFF AND SOME COLLAPSED WALLS. THE
 WORST DAMAGE WAS A BARN A FEW KILOMETRES NORTH OF CHESLEY WHERE ONE
 WALL WAS LEFT STANDING WHILE MOST OF THE STRUCTURE WAS BLOWN DOWN
 WITH DEBRIS SCATTERED TO THE SOUTH ACROSS THE PROPERTY AND  BEYOND.

ALL THE DAMAGE (TREES, BARN AND DEBRIS) WAS BLOWN TO THE SOUTH OR
 SOUTHEAST INDICATIVE OF STRAIGHT-LINE WINDS FROM A DOWNBURST. A
 DOWNBURST IS OFTEN ASSOCIATED WITH SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WHEN COOL AIR
 DESCENDS FROM HIGH UP IN THE STORM TO THE GROUND AND SPREADS OUT
 CAUSING DAMAGING WIND GUSTS. DAMAGE FROM THE BARNS INDICATE THE
 WINDS BRIEFLY REACHED THE LOWER END OF AN F1 RATING ON THE FUJITA
 DAMAGE SCALE, BETWEEN 120 KM/H AND 180 KM/H.

THERE MAY BE A FEW FOLLOW-UP PHONE CALLS TO FINALIZE THE CONLUSIONS
 OF THIS INVESTIGATION.

THIS WEATHER SUMMARY CONTAINS PRELIMINARY INFORMATION AND MAY NOT
 CONSTITUTE AN OFFICIAL OR FINAL REPORT.

END/OSPC

There has been major damage in the areas of Lambton, Middlesex, Elgin, Kent, and Oxford counties. I know someone in the insurance field who is already receiving multiple damage claims.

Several roads have been closed due to fallen trees and hydro lines, many homes have been significantly damaged, there was flash flooding and major hail damage, etc.

Here are some news articles on the storms

TWN's Chris Scott even called it 'something more typical to the Plains'

Woke up this morning around 7am to a war drum of thunder, gusty winds (kept blowing my blinds up to be parallel with the floor.) and rain. Looks like it intensified once leaving Ontario while I was looking at this mornings radar maps a few minutes ago.
