Somehow I think the OPP would have better geographical sense than that. Barrie and Angus are both in Simcoe County which is nowhere near Bruce County.

Local hydro crews were on 49.190MHz last night and I'm hearing chatter on 48.950MHz today.

*edit - 49.170MHz as well.

*edit - OPP are on 1TAC08.

Steve: Let's be fair here. There was reports of a tornado touchdown in Hanover and Walkerton, Walkerton is in Bruce County. See the link posted below, from Env Canada, noting this:

Perhaps our friend who posted here heard this on his scanner?
