Tornado Fatalities in Saskatchewan 1898 to 1979 (Map Graphic)

Keep in mind when looking at this chart that Saskatchewan's population peaked just before the "Dirty Thirties" and a large percentage was rural at that time. The population largely moved into the cities after this long period of drought. Amazingly, the number of fatalities was approximately 70 from 1898 to 1935 and only 10 from 1936 to present day.
