Manitoba Tornado Disaster

Several tornadoes have been reported to have destroyed lake areas north of Winnipeg on Saturday. Information is slow to come in but photos of the twisters have been posted on CBC and CTV. Injury (dozens) and damage numbers have been increasing as the day goes on but at least one person is dead another is in critical condition and the damage photos are disturbing. This storm was predicted two days ahead of time with a high risk issued at 11am on Saturday for the area by saskatoonscanner.com. Video from the storm when it hit Saskatoon on Friday will be posted this afternoon. The weather is expected to be clear for the next few days on the Canadian prairies while central Ontario in eastern Canada is under another high to moderate risk for severe weather. This already deadly system is moving towards central Quebec for Sunday night and Monday.

Kayaking, bird watching, fishing and wildlife photography are my summer hobbies when waiting for storms. See my adventures on YouTube!

I build a daily map of storm risk for the Canadian Prairies to accomplish two things. One, translate the complications of the meteorologists into something simple that the public can understand clearly. Two, become a buffer on social media to either raise the alarm and calm the masses depending on the level of hype.

Storm chasing is limited nowadays to a few photo ops by the lake at Wascana in Regina or up north at Pratt. Generally, I spend more time nowcasting for chasers around Saskatchewan which saves on gas and keeps me safe in my studio/bunker.

Once storm season comes to an end in August, gaming season then begins. Find me on Twitch.com/jaredmysko playing non-violent games like Forza and FIFA.

Thanks for all the likes, shares, comments and encouragement. Stay safe and enjoy the weather!
