AT AROUND 10 AM ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, A DAMAGING STORM MOVED
THROUGH AN AREA NEAR STORMS CORNERS IN EASTERN ONTARIO. STORMS

WELL-ANCHORED STORAGE SHED WAS DESTROYED TO ITS FOUNDATIONS. THE ROOF
FROM THIS SHED WAS CARRIED APPROXIMATELY 150 METRES AND FELL TO THE

RESULT. DEBRIS FROM A BARN ORIGINALLY AT THE WESTERN END OF THE

THIS IS THE 8TH TORNADO OF THE SEASON IN ONTARIO. ONTARIO NORMALLY

UNTIL EARLY OCTOBER.

This is the 8th tornado of the season, but Environment Canada has not publicly confirmed the 7th tornado.
