Vibes for Tornado Victims.

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Lots of vibes going out tonight to all the Tornado Victims hit by the storms in southern, and south-western Ontario tonight. Keeping my fingers crossed that all members from that area are safe and sound.
My thoughts and prayers are with them tonight.

That must be the storms that we had here yesterday! Terrible! Winnipeg (population of 700,000 was under tornado warnings too).

Sending lots of vibes out to those affected!

She's in the general area, but I didn't hear anything on the news talking about her city/town specifically.

The only place I've heard of deaths/serious injuries is Durham, ON, which is south of Owen Sound (South shores of Georgian Bay). I don't know if there are any members away from there. Hopefully not!

Apparently there was a tornado near where I live too, but I'm not sure if thats true or not. We got a really bad storm here earlier.

Is this area/town in the danger zone? Port Colborne

The really bad part of the storm was confined to a small area. Many of the rest of us got a thunder/lightening storm but nothing like Durham region. The City of Vaughan north of Toronto got some pretty nasty stuff as well but as far as they know now, only 1 life was lost in the whole Province which is pretty much a miracle. Certainly nowhere near what folks in the US Tornado valley have to deal with every year.

We got some pretty hefty winds, some rain, that's bout it thankfully

My thoughts and for all those affected.

Sure it may not compare to those in the US's Tornado valley, but when you aren't usually faced with severe weather like this, it is just as bad. Especially since people are not prepared for it usually, since it is not a normal occurance.

One live lost is just as important as ANY amount of lives lost.

Many many for all those left to pick up the pieces.... Businesses and homes destroyed.

As always, it could have been worse, but try saying that to the people who lost everything businesses they've worked their butts off for, homes they own.... and the parents/friends/relatives of the one who lost his life My thoughts are with each and every one affected.

Interpretation is everything and posts are often mis-interpreted as is the case here it seems.

Glad you didn't get hit in that, Chris. I'm in Durham Region and we were at the gym last night when the radio said "Tornados touching down in Durham" and we're all looking at each other going..."Ummm, where?" because the storm didn't actually hit us for another few hours.

Found out later that it's was more up the north chunk of the region up by Owen Sound (the region's pretty big). Sadly they do tend to get a tornado every two years or so up there. I was stunned to hear Vaughan was hit, though...Vaughan's about 40 minutes up the road from my work. Yikes.

Fortunately the worst we had was about an hour of severe lightning storm and no power until about 11:30 last night. There's a few trees down around here, but not much else.

Lots of for everyone caught in that storm.

Craztforinfo: Port Colborne is about 2 hours south of Toronto (by St.Catharines and Niagara Falls, if I remember correctly.) I believe they got some sotrms, but not much else. I spoke to family in St. Catharaines last night and they hadn't seen anything.

My boss called in from Burlington and he said a few trees were down but nothing too serious. We had very little in the Guelph area, in fact hubby and I went to Home Depot to pick up our garage door and transported it home on the roof of the car - no wind, no rain, just a very nice evening.

One equestrian farm was touched and some damage to a barn and some trailers blown over but nobody hurt, including animals, thank goodness.

One of the reporters on CBC was saying he, his wife and 2 cats went to the basement until the storm was over.

Whew, I am so glad that there is not much damage where you are.

Is Hurricane Bill headed for Canada, or can I just not read Hurricane maps?
