After Close Call With Tornado, Canadian Man Releases Severe Weather App
Collingwood (ON) Canada – Four years ago an Canadian man and his family had a close encounter with an unexpected F2 tornado. Luckily they escaped unharmed. That day, August 20, 2009, there were eighteen confirmed tornado touchdowns in Ontario. The Weather Warnings Canada app was inspired by that close call.
Severe weather appears to be on the rise in Canada. Environment Canada recommends that all Canadians use a weather radio to stay informed of impending severe weather. Unless you carry it around though, a weather radio cannot keep you informed in all situations.
