I have been following the story of a tornado touching down in Goderich, but it didn't really sink in until I saw the photos.
The Star sent Colin McConnell to capture the damage. His jaw-dropping photos can be seen on the front page of the Star's website.
One man is dead and there were several injuries. My grandmother and two sets of aunts and uncles live in Goderich (everyone is fine). My mother, her sisters and brother and a cluster of my many cousins grew up hanging out in the town square. Two of my cousins pointed out that the destruction of their hometown would be a good fit for the blog.
Wendy and Jen, you are 100 per cent right. Thank you. This storm hit with little to no warning and is a good reminder why it is important to have an escape plan in place and lots of food and water in case the power gets shut down.
Hope everyone is doing as well as they can and the cleanup doesn't take too long.
