    MIDLAND, Ont. — The Province of Ontario has issued a "red alert" for an immediate threat in the Central Ontario area on Wednesday evening.

    Environment Canada has issued a tornado warning in this area. Storms are moving quickly to the east of this area.

    Emergency Management Ontario recommends that persons in the area described as Penatanguishine to the north, Barrie to the south, Collingwood to the west, and Orillia to the east immediately find shelter.

    Environment Canada says radar indicates a severe rotating storm has likely produced a tornado in the Midland, Ont., area.

    Damage has been reported near Midland and there are reports of funnel clouds near Orillia, Ont.

    Residents are being advised to take immediate safety precautions.

    ^1up - wasnt there a movie about this?

    no tornado here as far as I know, it did pour rain for like 2 mins, sky has been dark all night, and the tv/cable turned off for a minute tonight, not even windy here.

    My dad said the centre of the storm came off Georgian Bay not too far north of our house (we're near the 11th concession, he said it was around the 12th-13th). Then tracked towards Balm Beach Road, and through Midland.

    And now Lindsay/Peterborough through to Belleville and Kingston are under a warning.

    I was in Midland the day after the tornado. Most of Midland looked totally fine but every once in a while I would pass a building that got really messed up. I saw a building with a missing exterior wall, an electrical supply company that was basically missing its roof, downed hydro poles etc. It was pretty epic.

    hey it survived the 85 barrie tornado, which was like 5x the size of this one that rolled through. So im sure my place is still there.

    Here are a few photos I took when I was in Midland. The building in the photo is one of my company's electrical suppliers. Yikes.
