There wasn't one, but two tornadoes touched down around Barrie last Tuesday evening.

Envirnment Canada confirms an F1 twister picked up a drive shed and tossed it 70 meters onto a farmhouse in Stroud, east of highway 400.

Investigators say a number of trees were snapped off or uprooted.

The twister had maximum wind speeds of between 155 and 175 km/h and was on the ground for less than a kilometer.

The one in Stroud touched down at around 5:30, which is not long after the same storm spawned a tornado in Angus.

No injuries were reported.

The F2 in Angus, caused millions of dollars in damage, affecting 102 homes and leaving more than 300 people without a place to stay.
