Researchers from Western University’s Northern Tornadoes Project will be in the Palmerston area on Wednesday surveying damage left after Tuesday’s storm.

The storm rolled through late afternoon spawning tornado warnings for Wellington County and a watch for southern areas of Grey County.


It’s been a busy season for the NTP, this week alone investigating the damage in Mitchell and confirming three tornadoes in eastern Ontario. Monday’s activity in Mitchell was still under investigation as of late Tuesday.

In late July, tornadoes were confirmed in the Blyth area and Gads Hill north of Stratford. There was also a strong downburst in the Palmerston area in that period.
