I think ec was late to the party today.... Don't know about the timing on the tornado warning but the storms that went through Toronto were out over lake ontario before any watches or warnings for Ontario were posted. It's pathetic when rotating storms with large hail roll through the most populated area In the country and the people who are paid to alert them do dangerous weather are asleep at the wheel....

The tornado warning from EC came 15 minutes before the tornado

That's good about the tornado warning but they crapped the bed on the severe storms that passed through the gta. Whatever the reason is I don't know but they leave alot to be desired much of the time

I haven't seen a single interview yet going like "we heard the tornado warning and went to our basement".

We really really need that emergency alert system to come together a little quicker.. and maybe even tornado sirens.

Gosh, we know someone who was laying in bed watching tv on his second floor when the tornado hit his house. He lost the roof and dove under the bed.

He's okay, but seriously... he was watching tv. Could have been an emergency alert going off.
