F2 tornado slices through Fallowfield, extensive damage through entire village
The tornado was only on the ground for 1 kilometre, but it had a width of 500 metres and passed directly through Fallowfield. The twister snapped and uprooted trees, caused structural damage to almost all houses in the village, and sent debris scattering throughout. At one home, a large pice of lumber was found piercing the bottom of an in-ground swimming pool that was full of water.
Throughout the village, garages, barns and outbuildings were demolished; one barn was torn entirely from its foundation and destroyed, and Mowat’s silos on the south side of town were heavily damaged.
