A team of Canadian meterologists are naming the Wildfires of Fort McMurray the top weather story of 2016.   

Former Thunder Bay resident Nicole Armstrong was one of many who were forced out of the community on May 4th.   

Armstrong is a dance teacher and at the time she was worried about the safety of her students.   

The early May wild fires caused highways to be backlogged with traffic as residents moved away from the blaze.
