Barry. The Canadian city of Barrie, Ontario was hit by a tornado on Thursday. According to media reports, eight people were injured. “I can’t tell you how incredible it is that no one was killed,” Mayor Jeff Lehmann of the city, about 100 kilometers north of Toronto, told a news conference.

The tornado damaged at least 25 homes, three of which were completely destroyed, reports CBC News. “The loss is devastating. It is substantive. It is huge,” a police spokesman insisted. A Twitter video shows the extent of the damage.
