Extensive Tornado Damage in Vaughan
The damage from the tornado that struck in Vaughan (just north of Toronto) is still being assessed.
Some incredible aerial shots by photographer Tom Podolec on Flickr show the extent to which the tornado damaged a number of homes.
Given the severity of the damage (some 200 homes may need to be demolished, and an additional 600 were damaged), it's amazing and quite relieving that more people weren't serious hurt or killed. A state of emergency was declared, and Mayor David Miller has pledged to provide any and all aid the City of Toronto can.
