Environment Canada is confirming yet another tornado that touched down in the area on Tuesday.

This one happened around 3:30 in the afternoon, in an area called Laurel Station, northwest of Orangeville.

That was shortly before a second twister scattered debris in Tottenham, southwest of Barrie.

Peter Kimball from Environment Canada says this one was an EF-1, much the same as Tottenham, and in this case it ripped a roof off of a home, blew a hole in the walls of another and moved an RV about 8 feet. That RV weighs about 16 thousand pounds.

No injuries were reported.
