Nick,

They were quite spectacular tornadoes going through a populated area. The first one above shows the impact of an inflow jet into the tornado ripping off a piece of sheeting iron before the tornado came into view.

Regards,

Active tornado season in Ontario!

This summer has been very active for tornadoes in Ontario, with multiple large tornadoes caught on tape by local residents, including a deadly F2 tornado that struck the fishing resort of Ear Falls, Ontario on July 12, 2009.  This morning I came across the video below of a more recent tornado that caused damage in Vaughn, Ontario, and thought I'd make a post with a brief climatology of Canadian tornadoes.  The active tornado season is not unprecedented here, as Ontario (especially the southern part) accounts for more tornado reports than any other Canadian province, with nearly 32% of the total annual reports.  The strongest Canadian tornadoes are also typically found in Ontario, with seven of the nine F4 tornadoes in recorded history in Canada occurring in southern Ontario.  The Canadian Prairie provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba receive the next most tornadoes, respectively, but the low population densities in these areas likely results in a significant underestimation of the true number of tornadoes.
