The damage is being assessed in the small town of Angus, Ontario after thunderstorms spawned a tornado last evening.

Environment Canada officials have confirmed a twister touched down about 100 km north of Toronto but no one was seriously hurt.

Dozens of homes were damaged and while some minor injuries were reported, emergency crews say the tornado struck when most residents were awake and children were home likely preventing casualties.

Meantime, several golfers on a course near Stouffville were injured after being struck by lightning as the severe weather hit.
