Multiple Tornadoes Touched Down In Ontario Yesterday And The Videos Are Terrifying
Ontario saw some real tornado action yesterday.
Last week there was thesomewhere in the southern half of Ontario due to a massive storm.
Thankfully, nothing actually happened and there was no tornado activity at all in the province last week.
That is not the case this week, with multiple videos appearing online showing what appears to be small tornados touching down in the province.
The tornado in the video above was apparently spotted in Guthrie, just north of Barrie, Ontario where several tornadoes were spotted throughout the evening yesterday.
Someone also saw and filmed a tornado in the area of Barrie last night before posting it on social media.
It's hard to tell whether or not both videos are of the same tornado, but the footage is very intense.
Someone else managed to capture an image of a tornado in the Barrie area yesterday. According to their tweet, they actually followed the tornado - something we don't recommend anyone do.
Once again, we can't tell if these are all different tornadoes or the same one seen multiple times by different people. The tweets say that "there may have in fact been two tornadoes here," but we don't know for sure.
But if it is the same one as the others then it looks quite menacing here.
And thanks to my dash cam, I have proof (it was so tough keeping up with this thing that I never did get any camera shots of the tornado). This is taken heading S on Line 7 in Oro E of Barrie. There may have in fact been two tornadoes here - will be investigating this... #onstorm pic.twitter.com/66EbcJLS7P— Dave Sills (@dave_sills) August 28, 2018
There's also another video of a tornado in the province, right behind someone's house.
The poster of this tweet doesn't say where it was so we can't give you an idea of where this happened.
But it looks very frightening.
Of course, it doesn't seem that everyone near a tornado yesterday was as scared as we would have been. At least one person's father just took the whole thing in stride.
A tornado touched down 20 minutes from my parents house in Barrie. Called my Dad to tell him to go to the basement and he goes "nah, enjoying my scotch on the deck". Wild.— Andre Apperley (@andreapperley) August 28, 2018
Clearly, some people just aren't scared of anything.
