Hydro crews continue working to repair damaged power lines across our region and the province.
Environment Canada issued wind warnings for dozens of areas on Sunday, with wind gusts reaching more than 100 km/h some areas.
There was extensive flooding on Port Dover’s Main St., where business owners were seen trying to manage the rising waters and keep the flooding out.
In many places the powerful winds knocked downed trees and branches that pulled down power lines, some of which blocked roads.
⚠️ WIND DAMAGE ⚠️
In the past 90 minutes, our Communications Bureau has received reports of trees down across roadways at over 30 locations across Halton.
Dozens of road closures in effect. If there isn’t a compelling reason to be driving right now, please don’t.
