In Storm of the Century: The Regina Tornado of 1912 , author Sandra Bingaman recounts one of the worst natural disasters in Canadian history--the rare F4 tornado that obliterated a broad swatch of Regina, Saskatchewan 100 years ago. With wind speeds up to 400 kilometres per hour, the death dance of the Great Regina Cyclone changed lives, and the city, forever. It remains the worst tornado in the nation to date, both in terms of lives lost and property damanged. Skillfully mixing riveting narrative with dozens of compelling, historical photographs, Bingaman brings this tragic event back to life.

Many fictionalized accounts of the tornado exist but this is the first complete account of the devastation and loss. An important addition to Regina's recorded history and published to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the storm, Storm of the Century will serve as an important testament to the heroic rebuilding of our city.
