Tornado watch ends for Kitchener, Waterloo Region

A screen capture from a video shot by Kaily Zack shows the funnel cloud beginning of a tornado in Wheatley, Aug. 11, 2017.

At the time, an Environment Canada severe thunderstorm and tornado watch was in effect for the Windsor, Essex County and Chatham-Kent areas. There are reports of damage to solar panels and a greenhouse.

But it appears most of the damage from the storm occurred in Hawkesville, a small community in the township of Wellesley in the Regional Municipality of Waterloo.

Meteorologist Rob Kuhn says the agency is looking into what it calls a "probable tornado" in Leamington, Ont., after photos of a funnel cloud surfaced online.

Around 7:30 p.m. Friday, another quickly rotating thunderstorm moving from west to east passed over Hawkesville and continued east likely passing just south of Elmira towards the village of Maryhill. There are reports of snapped power poles and debris in open fields.

Ontario usually sees an average of 14 tornadoes a year, if the two are confirmed it would bring this year's total up to nine.
