Tornadoes in SW MB last night

Post by niglefritz on July 28th 2015, 11:39 am

What an eventful night!

They were giving warnings for our area last night. They lasted well into the early morning. One tornado was on the ground for 2-3 hours. It was heading our direction. Thankfully it petered out before getting here. There is talk that it is right up there as one of the largest in Canada.

We were heading west out of Brandon and decided to turn back and wait the tornado warnings out. The sky was filled with lightning and the clouds were certainly ominous.

One farm is reportedly gone. No injuries reported as of right now. Our property is fine.

We need to head out that way for something today. Maybe we will get to see how close it got. It sounds like it was easily within  half hour drive.

We are certainly tired.

Some coverage from last night and this morning:

So glad you and your property are safe. Had quite a storm here last night too. Trees blown over and my gazebo is no more. We REALLY needed the moisture so that part was good. Suppose to rain all day today, but so far just cool and overcast.

It sounds like you had more damage. I am glad to hear you got rain. We got some, but not as much as I would have thought out of it all. I hate to think what kind of grass fires could have resulted from all the strikes if we had not got rain already.
