A powerful tornado devastated the Lake Huron town of Goderich, Ontario yesterday – killing one and injuring at least 37 others.
Environment Canada says residents were warned about the twister about 12 minutes before it hit.
A state of emergency has been declared in the community and there is so much destruction in the downtown area, it has been deemed a “no-go” zone.
As a result of winds up to 300 km/h, roofs were ripped off historic buildings, trees were turned into match sticks, cars were tossed around like toys and power lines were pummelled.
This was Ontario’s most powerful tornado in at least 15 years.
