Tornado blows change through Ontario bylaws
Six tornadoes that swept through Barrie and other Ontario communities in mid-July have brought the issue of building code changes to the forefront.
The communities of Barrie, Innisfil, Kawartha Lakes, Little Britain, Manilla, Lindsay, and Lake of Bays were all hit by the tornadoes on July 15. The EF2-strength tornadoes — meaning winds speeds between 178 km/h and 217 km/h — caused $75 million in insured damage, according to preliminary estimates from Catastrophe Indices and Quantification Inc. (CatIQ).
