Southern Ontario cleans up after thunderstorms roll through
Windsor set a new rainfall record for July 27. Nearly 47 millimetres fell Sunday, surpassing the 42 mm that fell on the same date in 1969.
Officially, Windsor airport recorded 46.8 mm — or almost two inches.
The thunder and lightning lasted at least three hours Sunday, ending with a rainbow.
Elsewhere in CBC Windsor's listening area, there's an unconfirmed report of a tornado near Grand Bend, on the shores of Lake Huron.
At least one house in the area was damaged when a large tree fell on it.
Power outages affected thousands of people from Amherstburg to London, including 4,000 homes and businesses around Grand Bend.
CBC Windsor's reporters and audiences shot plenty of photos and video.
