Extensive damage to marinas, some homes, as tornado rips through the Morson area
This probable F1 tornado touched down on the east side of Lake of the Woods. At Gill’s Morson Marina, two 20 tonne houseboats were picked up and thrown dozens of metres. One that was on the water at the time (the other was on a trailer ashore) had a woman aboard, and she sustained injuries but managed to swim ashore safely.
At another nearby marina, Canada North Houseboats, docks and storage buildings were damaged and destroyed. Throughout Morson, trees and hydro poles were snapped and several homes were damaged, one of which had its roof torn off.
