Manitoba Tornado Disaster
Several tornadoes have been reported to have destroyed lake areas north of Winnipeg on Saturday. Information is slow to come in but photos of the twisters have been posted on CBC and CTV. Injury (dozens) and damage numbers have been increasing as the day goes on but at least one person is dead another is in critical condition and the damage photos are disturbing. This storm was predicted two days ahead of time with a high risk issued at 11am on Saturday for the area by saskatoonscanner.com. Video from the storm when it hit Saskatoon on Friday will be posted this afternoon. The weather is expected to be clear for the next few days on the Canadian prairies while central Ontario in eastern Canada is under another high to moderate risk for severe weather. This already deadly system is moving towards central Quebec for Sunday night and Monday.
