Today is the 22 yr anniversary of the worst tornado on record in Canada... which just so happened to be where I live, and I just so happened to be right next to it... we were on the highway which was stopped traffic... a police man took my mom, sister and I and made us scale a fence(I was 6) to get to a Holiday Inn to shelter ourselves... the twister was hitting the houses directly behind to hotel we were in... bad bad bad.

I was so friggin scared.

Hi tc these are from the web site of one of the free newspapers available in the uk. It's their effort to show that they don't just do local news - which they do.
