McGuinty tours tornado devastation Add to ...

Premier Dalton McGuinty is on his way to Grey County today to tour the damage wrought by the tornado that whipped through Durham, Ont., earlier this week.

The premier has offered provincial help to those worst hit by Thursday's twisters and has expressed his sympathy for the Durham family who lost their 11-year-old boy to the deadly storm.

Mr. McGuinty was in Vaughan, Ont., Friday to take in the destruction left by the tornado that touched down in the city north of Toronto.

Durham and Vaughan were the hardest hit by the string of twisters that barrelled across the province, with both communities declaring states of emergency.

When in Vaughan, Mr. McGuinty said he was surprised at the power of the storm which "tossed cars around like toys."

Environment Canada also confirmed tornado touchdowns in Newmarket and Milton.
