Oklahoman visitor die in Ontario twister
This is somewhat like going from Florida
to New York and being killed by an alligator.
Very unusual. It has been 30 years since a
tornado hit this part of Ontario. Oklahoma
has sixty to seventy tornadoes a year.These
people were very unlucky. But nature is
unpredictable and we can never be sure
where and when danger will strike.
They came from Oklahoma, home of some of the deadliest tornadoes in the U.S., for a bit of fishing and relaxation in northwestern Ontario.
But two American men were killed and a third is believed dead after a tornado hit their camping resort near Ear Falls, about 200 kilometres northeast of Kenora.
The men were in one of two cabins that were uprooted and dropped into the lake by the twister when it hit the Fisherman's Cove Resort on Lac Seul about 8:30 Thursday evening.
Ontario Provincial Police Const. Beth Chevalier says she has not heard of a tornado touching down in northwest Ontario since the 1970s.
