Tornado Barely Misses Toronto
Reports came in throughout the week of the damage done to some streets and highways since last Friday's tornado touched down in the surrounding areas of Toronto. We didn't know what to expect that night, but the storm passed quickly, and most of us were lucky to get a good start to the weekend on a boat cruise out on Lake Ontario.
Since I hadn't seen any images until now, the severity had somehow escaped me. This amazing image, which looks like it was created for a Hollywood disaster flick, was taken by a meterology student in the area of Fergus, Ontario. It turns out it was a pretty rough storm, but one we will recover from.
Now, watching the news at the office, we are all in horror as hurricane Katrina pounds through Louisiana and Alabama. I've never seen anything quite this bad. We hope that all those involved stay safe with their loved ones.
