Here is what The Weather Network said:

Quote:
‎(Alex) Just spoke to the town office in Markstay. They have had no reports of a tornado touchdown, only media inquiries. We'd just like to remind everyone that at this point, no tornado WARNINGS have been issued; only a WATCH. We are continuing to monitor the development of thunderstorms but ask that everyone please remain calm and only report severe weather if you see it happening in your area.
Numerous people on the Weather Network fan page said they seen a tornado, a friend of mine said her aunt seen a tornado, and Tony Ryma from CTV News Northern Ontario said he heard someone say that there was a tornado. But, as you see above, there was no reports of a touch down. Must have just been a funnel cloud.

On days like today everyone thinks they are seeing a tornado... especially around this area where people have no concept of severe weather.

I'm at the reststop just passed Woodstock on the 401. I don't want to get too far down in case I need to get up the side of lake Huron. I guess it's a waiting game now. I check back often if anybody has an idea. I noticed that the storms seem to be moving straight west that are to the north but the hrrr has them looking like they will move southeast down here....
