Tornado in Toronto!

Pic from here
Last evening around 6pm we noticed the dark skies in our area of Vaughan just north of Toronto. Husband and I left our home in Vaughan to head downtown Toronto right at the start of the storm, as we drove out of our street we noticed an accident. Lightening hit the light post and the light post fell on a mini van, from what we could see I think everyone got out safe.

But this was the start of the storm, I do not think anyone new what was coming next!

So we headed south and we can see in the rear view mirror the flashes of lightening and loud thunder. Once we were off the hwy the storm caught up with us. Sky was black wind was strong and rain was so hard cars were pulling over and stopping. Then my phone was ringing off the hook, my mom, sister, cousins, friends calling to see if we were home safe and that tornado's were hitting our area in Vaughan. We turned on the news and heard about the horrible disaster this storm left our city with. We waited until the storm calmed and rushed home. Luckily our home was not damaged, but we drove just a couple blocks away and homes were destroyed.

We are all praying so much for all the families that lost their homes and were injured. To see the full story Read it here
