The August 21st tornado in Goderich has made the list of the year's top weather stories across Canada.

The storm which devastated the downtown core and several neighbourhoods to the west and southeast of the Square comes in at Number Five.

A worker at the Sifto Salt Mine died in the storm.

The preliminary damage estimate released in the fall puts the figure at 75-million dollars.

Goderich Mayor Deb Shewfelt says the final tally will likely be much higher.
