Environment Canada has confirmed a second, weak tornado touched down near Listowel just minutes after a tornado in the Mildmay area.
The first tornado touched down around 5:30 p.m. last Tuesday, May 13, ripping the roofs off barns and a home and damaging trees and hydro poles.
Now Environment Canada says a second tornado touched down around 5:50 p.m. southeast of Listowel and south of Conestogo Lake Conservation Area.
The tornado was spotted by Canwarn volunteer storm spotters.
The weather agency says the tornado track was approximately eight kilometres long, but caused no significant damage.
Due to the lack of damage, the tornado has been rated an EF-0, which would have had winds between 90 and 130 km/h.
Ontario normally sees around 12 tornadoes each year during a season that runs from late April until early October.
