Nature's wrath: Shattered buildings in Barrie resemble a war zone after yesterday's tornado that killed at least seven in that city. The twister tore through a new subdivision; flattening at least 100 houses in 15 minutes. It first touched down at the Barne racetrack; just east of Highway 400; where it  destroyed the horse barns. The storm reduced factories and a warehouse to shreds before roa east over Lake Simcoe. [Incomplete] Open in full size
