- Three tornadoes touched down in the Ottawa-Gatineau left demolished houses in their paths and people with critical injuries Friday night.
- After four days in the same clothes, barred from entering his condemned home, he’d had enough.
- ‘My family is going to die here’: Gatineau father recalls tornado terror. James Widder gripped his four-year-old daughter by her fingertips, terrified the small child would be torn from his grasp.
- “When, the tornado ripped our roof, my daughter went flying off. I was holding her hand in the air and I almost let go. She was slipping,” he said that afternoon, not long after an F3 tornado with winds that may have peaked at 265 km/h tore across the Ottawa River from Dunrobin, where it had flattened houses and injured at least four.
- As cleanup efforts continue in the wake of Friday’s devastating tornadoes, Ottawa-Gatineau residents are coming to grips with the fact their lives have been irrevocably altered by the storm.
Please pray with us, thank you!
