Days after they survived the gyrating winds of the Alonsa tornado, two young members of the Oleschak family were hurling themselves around on stage at Folklorama.

On August 3, Hayley and Hunter Oleschak were among 40 people who huddled in the basement of their grandparents' home near Margaret Bruce Beach while an EF4 tornado tore across the property on its way to Lake Manitoba.

Hayley, 12, and 10-year-old Hunter survived the ordeal, along with everyone else who took shelter on the Oleschak property. They recovered in time to perform three nightly shows at the Mé​tis Pavilion as part of the Asham Stompers, a jigging dance troupe.

In the United States, tornadoes are around 500 feet (150 m) across on average and travel on the ground for 5 miles (8.0 km).[24] However, there is a wide range of tornado sizes. This is the "dissipating stage ", often lasting no more than a few minutes, after which the tornado ends.

​"I don't think about anything. I just dance and do my stuff," Hunter said Thursday in between peformances at the Heather Curling Club in St. Boniface. "Once you're done, it brings everything back."

The August 3 tornado that hit the Alonsa area killed one man, 77-year-old Jack Furrie, and destroyed several homes, trailers, vehicles and farm structures.

It also destroyed an outbuilding on the Oleschak property. Both Hunter and Hayley saw and heard the twister as it chewed its way across the RM of Alonsa.

"You could see debris flying everywhere and trees were breaking," Hayley said.

"It sounded like a freight train, going right by your face," added Hunter.

They said they spent their time in the basement of the Oleschak home under a mattress, placed there by their dad, "just in case a tree fell on the house," Hunter said.

The Oleschak siblings learned to jig from their aunt, starting when they were two or three. This week marked the first time they performed as part of Folklorama.

"Lots of excitement, lots of people," said Hunter, who had already experienced more excitement this summer than any kid could would want.

Folklorama continues until August 19. The Mé​tis pavilion's run ends Saturday.

    As a Manitoba family mourns Jack Furrie, the man killed in the Alonsa tornado on the weekend, his grandson says bad cellphone service in the area meant the 77-year-old wasn’t warned about the storm in time. Kelly Brown remembers his grandfather as a kind, generous and funny man who couldn't leave the house without bumping into a friend, neighbour or former student who wanted to chat. "He was my best friend," Brown said Monday. "I don't know where to go from here now." Brown lives in Winnipeg now, but said he grew up in his grandfather's home in the rural municipality of Alonsa, about 165 kilometres northwest of Winnipeg.
