Did you spend your morning watching the sky after receiving a tornado warning around breakfast time Tuesday morning? Environment Canada says sorry about that.
Tornado warnings were issued for a number of southern Ontario locations just before 8:45 a.m. Tuesday, including Innisfil, New Tecumseth, Orillia, and into the GTA. A notice went out less than ten minutes later, cancelling the warnings.
Environment Canada said early Tuesday afternoon the warnings were sent out as a result of a testing error. The national weather service vowed to take steps to prevent this kind of error in the future.
