Barrie Tornado Anniversary.

31 years after the Barrie tornado,  science has come a long way in allowing forecasters to predict tornadoes,  and social media has allowed them to alert more people, faster, about severe weather.

On May 31st, 1985, an F4 tornado, winds of between 270 and 310 kilometres an hour, sliced a path from Grand Valley to Barrie,  killing 12 people, injuring 300 and causing $150 million dollars in damage.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Etienne Gregoire talks with Bayshore Broadcasting news reporter Ian McLennan.
