Default 2 (Probably three) Confirmed Tornadoes in Essex County - September 25

Two tornadoes and probably a third touched down in Essex County on the evening of Tuesday, September 25, 2018. There were EF-1 tornadoes confirmed in McGregor and Staples as well as a probable EF-0 tornado in Amherstburg. Detains are below in the release from EC:

Weather summary
for Ontario and the National Capital Region
issued by Environment Canada
at 3:38 p.m. EDT Sunday 30 September 2018.


Environment and Climate Change Canada confirms tornadoes in
Southwestern Ontario on Tuesday, September 25.

Severe thunderstorms affected portions of extreme Southwestern
Ontario during the evening hours of Tuesday, September 25. Two
confirmed tornadoes and one probable tornado occurred around or
shortly after 9 PM EDT.

A probable tornado affected the Amherstburg area. Damage consisted
of a brick welcome sign being blown over as well as large tree
branches down. This is consistent with EF-0 damage. In this case
there was no evidence of a long and narrow path of damage which is
typical of tornadoes. However, the area affected was in line with
the damage path of a tornado that occurred earlier in Michigan. As a
result, this is a probable tornado.

A confirmed tornado affected the McGregor area. Damage here
consisted of a garage that was pushed over, roof damage and large
trees down. This damage is indicative of an EF-1 tornado with
maximum winds of approximately 150 km/h. The damage path had a
length of roughly 2 km and width of 50 m.

Another confirmed tornado affected the Staples area. Damage here
consisted of a drive shed that was destroyed, with the debris being
carried a considerable distance. Another building suffered damage.
Tree damage was also reported. This damage is indicative of an EF-1
tornado with maximum winds of approximately 170 km/h. The damage
path had a length of roughly 3 km and width of 50 m.

Please note that this summary may contain preliminary or unofficial
information and does not constitute a complete or final report.
