StanleyCupOneDay Posted May 25, 2022 Share Posted May 25, 2022 (edited) I can’t believe no one else has posted about this yet, because the destruction it wrought was severe. 1000km of damage in Ontario and Quebec. Cars were tossed, power poles were snapped, records were broken, houses were leveled. At least 9 people sadly lost their lives. A derecho for people unaware of the term is a severe band of thunderstorms that produces extremely strong downburst winds created by a cold front sweeping in, slicing through the heat and humidity that was already in place. The videos and pictures are unbelievable. Also I can’t find any dedicated charities for helping our fellow Canadians recover from this event, but if anyone finds a group or link I’ll be sure to add and donate. https://www.theweathernetwork.com/ca/news/article/derecho-leaves-behind-nearly-1000-km-of-damage-fatalities-in-wake-ontario-quebec Edited May 25, 2022 by StanleyCupOneDay 1 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
