In a weather summary, the agency says it happened Wednesday in the community of Franktown, about 60 kilometers southwest of Ottawa.

There were also reports of multiple funnel clouds as thunderstorms passed south of the city in the Richmond and Kemptville areas, and some damage to trees and property was reported in Richmond.

Environment Canada says severe thunderstorms battered parts of central and southeastern Ontario that day, with multiple reports of hail the size of peas to ping-pong balls in the Kingston and Prince Edward counties areas.
