Environment Canada confirms 2 tornadoes hit southwestern Ontario Friday

Funnel cloud sighted in Wheatley during tornado watch

Environment Canada has confirmed that a tornado ripped through the Leamington and Wheatley-area Friday night.

Environment Canada says they're deploying a team of investigators to Hawkesville, a town 20 minutes northwest of Kitchener. "Farm equipment weighing over a ton was knocked over including a fork lift, a metal press and a grain drill", Environment Canada said in an email to CTV.

The national weather service says an EF-0 tornado with maximum winds of 130 km/h touched down near Leamington, Ont., around 5:40 p.m., damaging solar panels and a greenhouse.

He says that the extent of the damage suggests the weather in Hawkesville was more serious than that in Leamington.

Continuous lightning was associated with the twister.

There were no injuries reported from either tornado, according to Environment Canada.
