Severe Thunderstorm Shelf Cloud

Toronto, Ontario - Sept 07 2021
Today was expected to be a severe weather day across Ontario, and as a line of storms came into the province off of Lake Huron, a number of tornadoes were reported, including at least one damaging one near the town of Lucknow. The line continued to propagate towards the greater Toronto area, and as it passed overtop of the city, I was in position by the waterfront and was able to capture the most dramatic shelf cloud that I've seen here in Toronto. It dwarfed the city skyline. As it passed, tremendous rain and wind enveloped the area. I was hoping to also get a shot of the CN Tower getting struck by lightning, but it didn't happen today.
