  • 6 years ago
Occurred on August 5, 2018 / Wikwemikong Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada

Info from Licensor: "I am an Algonquin from Kitigan Zibi Anishenabeg Quebec, Canada. I travel to powwows every summer to Ontario and parts of Quebec. We traveled to Wikwemikong Manitoulin Island Ontario where my spouse is from and this is the first time a micro-burst has ever hit his community. The micro-burst did so much damage to the powwow, the grounds and most of all the vendors. They got the worst of the micro-burst. The powwow committee went into quick action after the micro-burst passed and they cancelled the rest of the powwow, which was a day early. The community also jumped into quick action into cleaning up the aftermath."
