Default Hamilton Tornado Warning

At 125am EDT Environment Canada sent out this bulletin, doesn't specify what warning it is or where it is for.

Code:
SEVERE WEATHER BULLETIN
ISSUED BY ENVIRONMENT CANADA
AT 1:25 AM EDT WEDNESDAY 8 JUNE 2011.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
==DISCUSSION==
AT 1:20 AM WEATHER RADAR SHOWS AN INTENSE THUNDERSTORM OVER THE
NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE CITY OF HAMILTON.  ROTATION SHOWING ON THE
RADAR AND A SPOTTER REPORT INDICATES THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR A
TORNADO WITH THIS THUNDERSTORM.  THE THUNDERSTORM IS HEADING
SOUTHWARD AT 60 KM/H.
At 148am EDT, 23 minutes later, Environment Canada corrects the warning so it gets issued, but by now the storm isn't even in Hamilton.
