Tornado warning issued, called off for Goderich

Storm damage in Goderich following a weekend tornado, seen days later on August 24, 2011. CITYNEWS.

A tornado warning was issued and later called off for Goderich, Ont., just days after a fatal twister touched down in the Lake Huron community.

One person was killed and 37 more were injured in Sunday’s F3 tornado.

Environment Canada issued another warning just before 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Much of Ontario – including Toronto – is under a tornado watch, which is less severe than a warning.

Goderich is still reeling from the effects of the weekend tornado. The Ontario government has promised $5 million in aid to the ravaged town of 8,000 people.

“I lived 75 years to live through my first one and I don’t ever want to live through another one,” Goderich resident Mary Lomax told CityNews.

“It’s been so sad walking around and looking at everything, seeing the damage that has been done,” agreed Susan Ropp, who also lives in Goderich.

“But hey, we made it through the first one, we’re going to get through the second one,” Ropp added.
