Today’s Weather Trivia:
19 March 1921: Severe storms-tornadoes, hail, heavy rains-raked areas of Ontario. A farmer near Glammis died when a tornado crushed his barn. North of Holland Landing, floods washed out the Grand Trunk Railway track. Minutes before the train from North Bay, a local resident waved his red socks, flagging down the train to avert a tragedy. Passengers handed him $28 in appreciation. -Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment Canada
