Doc Covers Tornado News Coverage

Goderich | by Fadi Didi  

Crew will speak with officials regarding news coverage in wake of 2011 tornado.

A documentary film crew is taking a different approach to the 2011 Goderich tornado.

Leanne Bucaro is in Canada's Prettiest Town to speak with officials about news coverage related to the F3 twister.

August 21st will be the fifth anniversary of the tornado.

Bucaro will focus on the role of radio in the region, and the immediacy of providing updates to locals during a time of crisis.

Coverage of the Goderich tornado will be part of a series called "One Big Small Town," which will cover the restoration efforts of towns affected by natural disasters.

Town officials, including Chief Administrative Officer Larry McCabe and Fire Chief Steve Gardiner are on the docket for interviews, as well as 104.9 The Beach's Alecia Anderson.

The owners of Hotel Bedford and Winston's Men Wear on the Square in Goderich will also be a part of the documentary.

Bucaro says Goderich is a strong example of the prosperity that can come from disaster.

The crew will spend Wednesday and Thursday filming, and would like to hear from any locals who have firsthand experience providing updates in the aftermath of the twister.
