Yesterday, as some of you may already know, tornados hit land all across Durham Region, Ontario. I apoligize for the lack of pictures because I did not expect this, here is the story on how it affected us. It started when I was about to call my friends, the weather got extremely hot and humid, with temperatures over 30 degress celcius and a humidex of over 90 %. Although we still decided to met them to go fishing. As we started driving the temperatures droped but the humidex stayed high and it started to get windy, so we listened to the radio for the weather. The sky started to get darker and the radio said there was a tornado watch. We called our friends we were about to meet and apparently the weather there was even worse, so we told them we would meet another time which I don't regret because as soon as we turned around, the sky turned nearly pitch-black behind us. Half way back to our house we heard tornados were hitting ground not far from us and then the sky did turn completely black behind us and it started to thunder loudly. We quickly pulled in the driveway and went inside, it started to poor and lightning flashed everywhere! Our friends called and they said tornados near them were destroying houses! We took the necessary safety precautions and got some flash lights. The power suddenly went out and about an hour later the sky turned green, orange and red but the thunder and lightning stopped. Unfortunately for us the power stayed out until morning so we had trouble getting to bed.
