Click on "show more" for tornado news articles about damage & other videos. Location - Goderich, ON, Canada, on the eastern shore of Lake Huron. This footage was originally submitted to & uploaded into the CBC News website, voluntarily, without compensation to the creator or anyone. CBC does not pay users who upload videos to their website. I do not own the rights to this video, however, I contacted the fellow who filmed this video & who owns this content & he gave me permission to use it .. he asked me to keep his name withheld, but at anytime if he changes his mind, I will give him full credit here. With only about 9 minutes notice, the tornado roared through the historic downtown square & several residential areas. In the late afternoon, a supercell storm formed and intensified over Lake Huron, spawning a waterspout which came ashore and passed directly through the heart of Goderich. At its widest over downtown, the tornado was estimated to be 1.5 km across, and its path was an estimated 20 km long. This is raw footage taken by a young man, who is heard yelling, "GET IN THE BASEMENT", as he jumps into his car. At the beginning you can see how extremely close he really is to the tornado bearing down. The squealing tires are heard as he takes off. Later in the video he catches up to the tornado again .. it's very close at times & you can hear the roar of the wind, the hailstones pelting his car & see the trees bent over. A really good view of the large black tornado wedge is seen at: 1:20 (click time to view directly). The extreme high velocity inflow winds up to 350 KM/Hr or 220 mph can be heard/seen heading into the vortex of the funnel from all sides. The actual tornado also appears in a few other spots in the video. This is probably the best & ONLY close-up video there is, showing the tornado & it's fury as it rapidly makes a destructive, deadly path through Goderich & beyond. It was Ontario's strongest since 1996. Unfortunately, approximately 40 people were injured & tragically one person died ... our hearts & prayers go out to his family & friends.
