Tornado Touches Down In London Ontario

Environment Canada confirms that a tornado has actually occurred north-east of London on April 11th .

According to analyzes conducted by researchers at Western University, the winds reached 150 km / h at the height of the storm.

The EF-1 tornado was about 11 km long and 200 m wide.

“In the grand scheme of things, it wasn’t that strong,” said Peter Kimbell, a warning preparedness meteorologist at Environment Canada. “We concluded that the winds would have been as high as 150km/h, very locally. So that would place it in an EF-1 catagory on a scale of zero to five. It wasn’t that big but never the less it caused some scattered damage and was noteworthy.”

The phenomenon damaged a barn as well as electric poles and trees
