A friend of my parents managed to get some really good aerial photos of the damage in Barrie. I'm talking to her now asking for permission to share them. I'll keep you guys posted. It looks like EF2 damage, with roofs torn off houses and some upper level walls gone. Luckily, no deaths have been reported yet, but 8 people have been injured.

Preliminary survey results from DMX have Lake City tornado rated EF3, all others surveyed so far EF1. I chased on Wednesday and got a dramatic structure shot of the Shell Rock/Waverly storm and a couple glimpses of the tornadoes, including a shot of the Waverly tornado just before it dissipated. I missed it when it was in its fully condensed/multiple vortex stage. One thing I've noticed when I chase is that I need to get better about realizing when I'm actually in good position on a tornadic supercell, and should hold my ground and watch it for a while. My instinct is usually to keep moving in order to stay ahead of the action area and out of the rain. Still, it was the first chase I've been on in a long time where I was (a) legitimately excited about the day's tornado prospects before leaving, and (b) the storm I was on actually delivered. Will post photos later.

I got permission to share the damage photos I was talking about from Barrie. It's been rated by Environment Canada as a high-end EF2, with max winds of 210 kph (130 mph).
