Windsor made Environment Canada’s top ten list for regional weather stories for Ontario in 2014.

The “August Deluges” ranked number 7 on their list.

On August 11th, a slow-moving storm crossed the Detroit River into Windsor, bringing with it torrential downpours. In the end over 70 mm of rain fell over a 10-hour span filling basements and swamping yards and streets.

It was a month’s worth of rain and the second-highest rain total ever recorded at the airport during August.

About a week later, another powerful storm ripped through Windsor bringing down huge tree branches and tossing around backyard gazebos that were bolted down in concrete. An Environment Canada storm team later confirmed that at least two EF0 tornadoes touched down − the first in south Windsor and the second northeast of Harrow.
