Funnel Cloud In Essex County

Environment Canada confirms a funnel cloud was spotted during afternoon storms that rolled through Windsor-Essex yesterday.
“We received many photos of it and had a report from the OPP of it,” according to Severe Weather Meteorologist Kelly Hobelman. “It was spotted around Hwy. 401 and County Rd. 19, I believe. We didn’t receive any reports of damage or see any photos of it actually touching the ground.”
She says it was a different storm front than the one that caused a tornado in the Tottenham area near Toronto yesterday.
She says there’s a small risk of thunderstorms today, and it gets nicer as the week moves on.
