Environment Canada’s damage assessment team also confirms an EF-2 tornado touched down near Hawksville near Waterloo around 7:30 p.m.
“Farm building and sheds were damaged with one anchored shed completely destroyed. Farm equipment weighing over a ton was knocked over including a fork lift, a metal press and a grain drill,” the agency said, adding that maximum winds were estimated as 180 km/h.
No injuries have been reported from either tornado.
The two tornadoes bring the count this year up to nine in southwestern Ontario.
Typically that region sees about 14 tornadoes in a year.
