Northwest Ontario tornado

On another note, the first deadly tornado in Canada in 3 years occurred the other day. It was somewhere in the forested area of northwestern Ontario. The video, in a likely time-sensitive link, is at this link. According to my sources, it looked classic on RADAR.

It's a tragedy to have people killed in a tornado. Although I love to watch them, I (and most, probably all) people I know never. Ever. Want to see anyone hurt by them. This, in part, is why we chase--aside from the aesthetic beauty of a storm, we're there to help warn of impending danger. It's what we do.

Pretty sad situation there. =/ I grew up in Kenora and never thought I'd hear of a killer tornado around there, especially more north into the sticks.

tragic that these fellows lived in tornado alley and ended up loosing their lives in some remote place in Canada where these events are seemingly rare.
