Default Oct 17 2016 possible tornado or microburst

Finally home to get a chance to post this, but there was a huge warned (i use the term loosely because they were way late on simcoe counties warning) system that moved through Grey Bruce and Simcoe County earlier today.

Torrential downpours, hail, wind, non-stop lightning for about an hour and a half. Once everything was said and done, many power outages and damage reports started coming in from the Collingwood area.

Roof torn off of a Mr Transmission building.
Multiple trees down and wires down along hwy 26
Power still out in parts of midland and around the county.
Co-worker reported his in-laws and neighbors house in Collingwood area were hit by what they described as a tornado, lots of damage on their properties.

Still waiting on any news from Elmvale and area, it looked like the brunt of precipitation and a decent amount of wind passed over there after hitting collingwood.
