How quickly buildings can be destroyed

The beautiful town that we always visit when staying at the trailer has been damaged. A tornado ripped through the town of Goderich yesterday afternoon, destroying large parts of the downtown circle. I am in shock, looking at the pictures of the devastation. Just a month ago we were sitting in the park eating our ice cream cones, now that park is covered by tree limbs, cars and other debris.

I just can't believe how quickly a storm can blow in and destroy everything. We've often watched the clouds building over the lake, and I'm sure everyone thought it was once again, just blowing over. Not this time, unfortunately.

My thoughts go out to the people of Goderich Ontario and to your beautiful town.
