Revenge of the Windstorm

Repent! Repent! Give up your polluting ways, because Mother Natures Strikes Back.

“…forecasters reported winds of 200 km/h…a two-year-old boy who was killed by a falling wall in London…a single gust of wind in the early afternoon knocked three trucks onto their sides…an 18-month-old child hit by a terrace door that was ripped from its hinges…Berlin’s new main train station was shut down after a two-tonne girder was ripped out of its facade…” – CBC

Is this for real? And I thought the storm that ripped through Stanley Park was bad.

  1. Even worse (no, not really)! Check out the crazy wind shenanigans in South Africa! Nobody was killed by the flying adverts, but one can only imagine the fear this will produce for the 2010 World Cup!
    Seriously though, the El Nino blame game has started in full force and people love to grab onto any excuse to keep on with their normal wasty ways. It’s not just El Nino people.
