As the clean-up continues in Grand Bend, Environment Canada confirms the eighth tornado of the season in Ontario touched down in the town Sunday night.

They say the E-F-1 twister reached speeds of up to 175 kilometres an hour, uprooted trees and damaged hydro poles.

There is one reported injury – a person hurt by a fallen tree in a park.

Power to all Hydro One customers was restored Tuesday evening. Around 4000 customers were without power when the storm first hit, due to trees falling on power lines.
