Today’s Weather Trivia:
27 November 1950:1950: Nearly 1,000 people fled their ice-sheathed homes on the west end of Lake Ontario as a howling 150 km/h gale lashed the air with snow, sand, and water. Exhaustion, shock, bruises, and chills from icy water immersion led to casualties. The storm pitched 12 cabins into the churning waves and tilted several others on their footings. Waves flooded furnaces and sanitation equipment in cellars. – Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment Canada
