Sheet metal siding from a factory is wrapped around a cell tower antenna on Deziel Drive

Cleanup efforts have begun following Wednesday night’s tornado in Windsor.

The tornado tracked roughly south, then north of EC Row Expressway, crossing Byng, Turner, Walker, and Riberdy Roads before entering the Kautex and Deziel Drive industrial area. The storm continued to damage areas northeast of EC Row along Pillette and Queen Elizabeth Drive, as well as areas on Lauzon Road.
