From CBC:
The frantic activity that follows the May 31, 1985, Barrie tornado is a whirlwind of its own. The storm is devastating: eight killed, 155 injured, 300 homes destroyed and $100 million in damage. Yet in its wake, local residents are transformed from terrified victims to a unified army bent on rescue, restoring order and providing comfort. Reporter Doug James follows Barrie residents through 48 hours of hell.
