Get hooked on tornado history! On-going project to compile an interactive database with in depth tornado history.
Today is the 1 year anniversary of the #Dunrobin #tornado that hit just after 5pm. There were a total of about 5 tornadoes in the #Ottawa outbreak this day. Amazingly no one died. Dunrobin was rated EF3, borderline EF4 and the Ottawa one was rated a high end EF2.
