Environment Canada has confirmed the 18th tornado of the season in Ontario touched down in Christian Island earlier this month.
Discussion with representatives of Beausoleil First Nation led Environment Canada officials to believe a tornado did touch down.
Environment Canada officials say they believe that an EF-0 tornado hit the region around 2:00 p.m. with winds of at least of 90 km/h.
Beausoleil First Nation Chief Roland Monague tells CTV News they are still in the process doing minor cleanups. There is no damage amount at this time.
Monague says residents who suffered damage can make a claim through Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada.
The storm also brought a tornado in Udney in Ramara Township and downburst damage in Orillia.
