EF0 twister damaged trees and power lines

The wicked weather that blew across our region on Friday afternoon produced a tornado that downed trees and power lines.

The Northern Tornadoes Project, co-created by Western University, confirmed the tornado struck Friday afternoon, since classified as an EF0 tornado, the weakest on the Enhanced Fujita Scale.

It is estimated the twister had a maximum wind speed of 130km/h and downed several trees within Thornbury. The tornado also damaged some hydro lines and street lamps as it followed a path through town before entering Georgian Bay.

There were no reports of any injuries.
