WELLAND - Storm chasers across southern Ontario and western New York had no clue what they were in for Sunday when they headed out to watch lakes Ontario and Erie for waterspouts.

It turned out to be a record-setting day, with 67 waterspouts documented.

Thanks obwan.

One thing: please only quote the first paragraph or two of an article. Do no post the entire article as both the site AND yourself could end up in trouble. (unless you obtain permission beforehand from the source, in which case they usually want you to pay a fee). Thanks.
