The Gales of November

Lake Ontario - Nov. 6, 2005

A deep low pressure system tracking across the area triggered numerous wind warnings across Ontario and gale warnings for the Great Lakes. The strong winds whipped up the waves on Lake Ontario, making for treacherous conditions along the shoreline. The same system spawned a killer tornado the previous night in Kentucky & Indiana. A mobile home park in Evansville was destroyed and there were numerous fatalities and at least 200 people were injured.

"The dawn came late and the breakfast had to wait
When the gales of November came slashing
When afternoon came it was freezing rain
In the face of a hurricane west Wind"
