CORRECTION: We have a correction to an early story about a Kingston-area man, killed in Friday’s tornado in Ottawa.
A Kingston city official tells Quinte News that Darren Smith, who was employed as the city’s Supervisor of Recreation Facilities, was killed in a “storm-related incident on Friday”, but it happened at his home outside of Kingston, not near Ottawa.
We apologize for the error.
Smith leaves behind a 19-year-old son, 17-year-old daughter and his wife.
