Found this on another site - it's absolutely amazing. Even more amazing is that so far, only 2 people are confirmed dead - a firefighter and a plant worker. My condolences to both of their families.

401 and the Dan Valley aka Damn valley parking lot were shut down. That has to be a major headache for them up there, 4 lanes in either direction on the Dan Valley and 6 on the 401 there. Major traffic headache for the drivers.

Anyway that was how many I remember last time I was up there.

My prayers to the families.

Condolences to the families affected for sure.
This did happen on a Sunday so traffic affected was not as bad as could have been.

Looking forward to my Steelers arriving in big T.O in a couple days. Heard Mel Blount on the radio up here this morning as he is coing up for the game and to promote his foundation. Sounded really good on the radio and had some good input on teams from then seventies when asked.

That wave looked amazing.

That is one of those things that you love watching the explosion... but hate thinking about the effects it is causing the area around it.
