Damaging, EF-2 Tornado

Angus, Ontario - June 17 2014
A few photos from my June 17th 2014 storm chase in Southern Ontario. I teamed up with The Weather Network and we chased several storms, many of them tornado warned. Our efforts began not far from the shores of Lake Huron, North of Walkerton, them we continued down to Guelph and through the Greater Toronto Area and then up to the town of Angus, where a confirmed EF-2 tornado had touched down, doing considerable damage. About 100 homes were affected, 20-30 severely. Luckily, there were no serious injuries that I heard about.
