Peter Kimbell, a warning preparedness meteorologist with the national weather agency, said it's too early to confirm whether they were actual tornadoes.

The preliminary results from Thursday's survey of the damage indicate the tornado had maximum winds of 150 km/h, an 18 km path, with a maximum path width of 250 metres.

David Sills, the Executive Director of the Northern Tornadoes Project, says that's a significant track for a tornado on the weaker side of the scale.

There are no reports of anyone being hurt.

Tornado warning ended for London region

The region has been under a heat warning since Tuesday, but that is set to end Wednesday night as the storm accompanied by a cold front will produce temperatures to drop to 15 C.

The second, a twister in the Belmont area, was spotted around 8:30 p.m, again with damage to trees and some structural damage reported.

The tornadoes knocked out power and damaged trees and buildings in the Belmont area, outside London, and in Glencoe southwest of the city.

The team has also received reports of a possible tornado in the Brussels and Belfast area, which they are also investigating.
