A deadly tornado tore through Goderich, Ont., on Sunday night, leveling houses, trashing business and killing one man. Environment Canada called the F2- or F3-level twister the worst to hit Ontario since 1996. At least 61 people were injured and likely millions of dollars in property damaged as winds up to 300 km/h whipped through the town of 8,000. Pictures from the city centre posted on Facebook show smashed cars, toppled trees and blown-out store fronts. On Monday morning, Premier Dalton McGuinty activated Ontario’s emergency disaster plan.
