Let RetroSparX spark your memory of some wicked weather in An Historic Storm! Many may think that southern Ontario is immune from the types of destructive hurricanes that rip through the southern and coastal regions of North America. Read about how Hurricane Hazel caught Toronto and its surrounding area off guard as it tore through in 1954, leaving not only a path of destruction in its wake but also a newfound resolve to overhaul the region’s storm management procedures and emergency preparedness.

As an added bonus, in The Math of Destruction, read some crazy facts about the historic hurricane season of 2005, when the skies literally trembled with violent winds.
