'''Central Alberta Mini-Outbreak'''
<nowiki>*</nowiki>PLEASE ADD IMAGES*
At 9:51 a.m, The first thunderstorms fired up off the Albertan Foothills and a dry line immediately started and thunderstorms fired up. Around 11:23 a.m the thunderstorms formed a historic squall line from Longview to Edson. The first of 11 tornadoes touched down 5 miles west of Buck Lake, as a weak EF-0 that snapped off some branches of the thick forested foothills and some shingles flew off the houses in Buck Lake, but many more flew off with the 80 mph gust front, the 120 cm of rain, the lightning flashing every second, and the ping-pong ball sized hail. The second and third tornadoes were more south, around Sundre, one of the most tornado-vulnerable places in Alberta, also producing minimal damage. After a while, the fourth tornado touched down and it was a relatively strong EF-2 that touched down near Turner Valley, near the south end of the supercell. It caused some damage in Black Diamond and Turner Valley, and one person was killed. The fifth tornado touched down 5 kilometers north of Sundre and this ended up being the most destructive tornado. It barrelled ENE at 20 mph, the same speed of the squall. 22 minutes later, the tornado tore through the small communities of Crammond, Raven, Spurce View, Markerville, and Tuttle. The next target was Red Deer, a small city with a population of 103,000. The tornado made a sharp NE turn, and headed to Red Deer. It killed 4 people, produced high-end EF-2 damage, and tore a huge path through Red Deer. The tornado headed for Blackfalds, but curled up and died. The sixth, seventh, and eighth tornadoes were all EF-0s that caused minimal damage in Cremona, Enwhistle, and Cochrane. The ninth tornado was an incredibly dangerous EF-4 tornado that spared the lives of the people in Lacombe and Ponoka as it narrowly passes between them. The hail grew aroun Edmonton, busting 13 windows at the West Edmonton Mall, as the hail expanded to tennis ball sized. The tenth tornado was a stronger-than-average EF-1 that went through the runways of the Calgary Airport and the northeast communities of Calgary, killing 2 people. The last tornado passed south of Camrose, nicking the southwest corner of the city, being an EF-0. After that the squall line from hell started to die down, with one person being injured from lightning in Drumheller, and a roof being torn off in Daysland because of the gust front. In the end, $35 million dollars in damage was done from this storm, half of it being from the tornado, and the other half from the storm, being the lightning, rain, hail or wind.
'''Swift Current , SK EF-5'''
<nowiki>*</nowiki>PLEASE ADD IMAGES*
This is the deadliest tornado in Canadian history. A supercell fired up west of Swift Current and produced 4 inch hail, 100 cm of rain in 2 hours, gust fronts to up 125 mph, but most noticeably, and EF-5 tornado with wins of 215 mph. It slammed right into Swift Current and utterly destroyed it. It had a peak width of 2 kilometers, which is half of Swift Current's width. It killed 74 people, which crushed the previous Canadian death toll record, which is 28. It costed $60 million dollars in damage, and it puts a serious dent in Canadian history.

The last three days of the outbreak were the most
The last three days of the outbreak were the most days in history. The SPC had issued high risks for Day 1, Day 2 and a never before seen Day 3 high risk. Each day had a 60% hatched risk of tornadoes. Hundreds of flash flood, tornado, and severe thunderstorm warnings would be issued. One thing that made this day particularly bad was that lot's of powerful tornadoes tracked trough largely populated towns and cities causing massive destruction.

The 11 day sequence was a disastrous 11 day stretch of severe weather throughout the United States that came from multiple storm systems training one after the other during the year 2025. The main Event lasted a total of 11 days with only 4 days not having a high risk. A record number of tornadoes touched down including a unprecedented amount of EF4's and EF5's. Other than tornadoes, massive hail, extreme winds, deadly lightning and massive flooding ensued. Another problem was that many strong tornadoes hit heavily populated towns and city causing never before scene destruction. Much of the United States was effected. For 7 of the 11 days a high risk was in place and it was the first time a day 3 high risk had been issued. A large amount of PDS Tornado Watches were issued and a breathtaking amount of Tornado Emergency's were issued. Luckily due to amazing forecasting and great public action, not a single fatality occurred.
Day 1 (June 20, 2025)
Summery: Day one was the first of many destructive days to follow. A large High risk was places for much of the southern plains and Florida began it's eleven day streak of heavy rain and severe thunderstorms. Florida would later call a state of emergency due not only to tornadoes and severe storms, but from extreme flooding from relentless rain. A fairly large 45% hatched risk of tornadoes was in place for parts of Texas as well a threat for large hail and destructive wind gusts. Many tornadoes touched down, including several EF4 and EF5 ones. Reports of hail ranged from pea sized (0.25 inches) to around tennis ball size (2.25 inches). Wind reports of 50 to 60 MPH were common in several areas with a few reports clocking the wind at 70 to 80 MPH with one report noting a 92 MPH gust in northern portions of Houston. Due to very heavy rainfall, severe flooding occurred in parts.

The tornado hit a few more structures at EF1 intensity before dissipating.
Day 3 (June 22, 2025)
Summery: A very large Moderate risk was issued for parts of the eastern and south eastern United States. The main threats would be damaging wind and tornadoes, but some hail would occur as well. Several tornadoes including a few strong and violent ones occurred and the largest hailstone was baseball size. The strongest wind gust in that area was 86 MPH. Another area of severe weather by North Dakota was occurring. A slight risk was in place here with only a 2% chance of tornadoes. Although there was such a low chance for tornadoes, a few did occur. The largest hailstone in this area was ping pong ball size and the strongest wind gust was 65 MPH. Yet another area existed for severe weather. Parts of the south western United states were placed under a enhanced risk including the L.A area. This was practically odd because this area rarely gets any severe storm or tornadoes. A small 10% area of tornadoes was foretasted for part of the enhanced area. A few tornadoes did touch down was a couple strong ones. The largest hail stone was 2 inches and the strongest wind gust was 75 MPH.
