Tor­nado bat­ters area near Ot­tawa

China Daily (Latin America Weekly) - - World - CANADA

More than 200,000 peo­ple in Canada’s cap­i­tal re­gion of Ot­tawa were with­out power on Satur­day and two peo­ple were crit­i­cally in­jured after a pow­er­ful tor­nado ripped apart dozens of homes and threw cars into the air. After vis­it­ing the hard-hit Dun­robin area, in the city’s west, Ot­tawa Mayor Jim Wat­son likened it to an aerial bomb­ing, adding that Fri­day’s tor­nado was among “the top two or three trau­matic events that have af­fected our city” in his­tory.
