Dufferin OPP are investigating a possible tornado in Melancthon Township during the Thursday dinner hour.
Const. Paul Nancekivell said they had reports of a tornado near the 4th Line and north of County Road 17, just north of Shelburne, at 5:37 p.m.
?We've yet to confirm it, but we've got severe hail and rain out there now. I can't see across the road,? he said, as his power flickered.
There have been no reports of injuries.
Nancekivell said hydro lines were also down across the 4th Line in the same area, and a barn had collapsed along what would be considered the the path of the tornado.
?The people have said their barn has collapsed and they're waiting it out in the basement,? he said.
Sgt. Kelly Daniels of the Nottawasaga OPP said she had heard reports of three sightings of a tornado in the area at the time Nancekivell described.
