It was an active long weekend weather-wise in our region.
On Monday, Environment Canada issued a special weather advisory for London, Parkhill, Komoka, Strathroy as well as Eastern and Western Middlesex County.
According to officials, conditions were favourable for the development of funnel clouds, which are generated by weak rotation under rapidly growing clouds or weak thunderstorms.
Forecasters had said potential rotation could intensify and become a weak land spout tornado.
That statement has since been lifted, but came on the heels of a violent storm that made its way across parts of the province on Sunday.
Severe thunderstorm watches turned to warnings, as storms rumbled throughout parts of southwestern Ontario. In London, about 80 millimetres of rain fell.
The storm system also proved deadly.
OPP say a 52-year-old Tillsonburg man was killed after he was struck by lightning.
According to investigators, Dave Johnson was mowing his lawn at his home on Glendale Dr. at around 3:15 p.m. Sunday afternoon when he was hit.
The man was treated by emergency crews at the scene. He was then transported to Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
