WEATHER SUMMARY FOR SOUTHERN ONTARIO AND THE
NATIONAL CAPITAL REGION ISSUED BY ENVIRONMENT CANADA
AT 5:20 P.M. EDT TUESDAY 7 OCTOBER 2014.

STORM DAMAGE NEAR CAMBRIDGE MONDAY EVENING.

THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY MOVED THROUGH THE SHEFFIELD AREA, TO THE
SOUTHEAST OF CAMBRIDGE, AROUND 10:30 P.M. MONDAY EVENING. ENVIRONMENT
CANADA HAS RECEIVED REPORTS OF DAMAGE IN THIS AREA FROM THESE STORMS.
DAMAGE FROM THE STORM INCLUDED SIDING AND SHINGLE DAMAGE TO HOMES,
SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE DONE TO A RECREATIONAL VEHICLE, A SET OF BLEACHERS
AT THE LOCAL BALLPARK THAT WAS CARRIED A SHORT DISTANCE IN THE AIR

NARROW AND SOME OF THE DAMAGE WAS SCATTERED IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS.
THE POSSIBILITY EXISTS THAT THIS DAMAGE WAS CAUSED BY A TORNADO.

ENVIRONMENT CANADA WILL CONTINUE THE INVESTIGATION WEDNESDAY MORNING
BY SENDING A DAMAGE SURVEYOR TO SHEFFIELD TO TAKE A FIRST-HAND LOOK
AT THE DAMAGE PATH. A FINAL DETERMINATION ON WHETHER THE DAMAGE WAS
CAUSED BY A TORNADO OR A BURST OF DAMAGING WINDS WILL LIKELY BE MADE
BY LATE IN THE DAY ON WEDNESDAY.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SUMMARY MAY CONTAIN PRELIMINARY OR UNOFFICIAL
INFORMATION AND DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A COMPLETE OR FINAL REPORT.
