So far CTV is reporting that everyone is fine but some cars were flipped (and i'd assume some severe damage in that happening)

Again CTV said fire/police had arrived and confirmed that all were safe (so far.. no reported injuries that is)

I was there this afternoon when it was sunny and beautiful. Apparently roads are closed... can't confirm exactly what has happened and I've tried calling people who are there but no answer or no cell service at all? Anyone have any other information? Want to ensure all are OK!

Hope everyone is well out there! Let us know if you hear anything.

Tornado warnings were just issued for my area as well (Hamilton). It's scary knowing there's nothing you can do if it does happen.

On the weather network, they are just saying a roof was torn off somewhere, but did not say it was a barn. they aren't reporting any injuries, but have closed roads for access for work crews.

please, anyone from that area, let us know you are ok. Godspeed to those in the area.

Everyone is uninjured at RCRA - lots of kids shaken up, a bunch of horses spooked, but all in all - everyone is fine.
There is however, significant damage to the property, as well as several trailers flipped, cars crushed under fallen trees. A very big mess to clean up.
Due to this damage - the show has been cancelled for the rest of the weekend.
