A Tornado hit a small town in Ontario on July 24th only leaving nothing but havoc and destruction for the citizens of Marmora, Ontario and neighbouring communities nearby. The Tornado formed very quickly and touched down in Marmora Ontario officially as reports have said. It also caused damage in Marmora, Madoc, Rockdale, Antinolite and Tweed, as well as Cordova in the Havelock area.
Marmora saw roofs and houses being ripped apart, as well as trees down on the roads. Rockdale saw much of the same but there were also trailers flipped on their side with the extent of injuries being unknown. There was also damage to homes in Antonolite and Tweed. Trees were down in all of these communities causing issues with downed power lines, creating power outages.
Thankfully very few injuries were reported at the time of the tornado and emergency crews including hydro one as well as other power generation companies are working hard and diligently to restore hydro and the roadways in the area.
