Damage reported across Ontario from high winds

Hydro repair crews across the province spent yesterday restoring electricity to thousands of homes and businesses affected by the powerful wind storm that raked Ontario.

Environment Canada says wind gusts topped 100 km/h in Port Colborne on the Lake Erie shoreline.

Gusts in the upper 90s were recorded in Hamilton, Brockville and Pearson International.

Pictures posted to social media painted a picture of just how damaging those winds were.

In Niagara Falls, two to three homes under construction in the Empire subdivision south of Niagara Square collapsed.
In Hamilton, residents took snaps of a large KFC bucket and the pole it was mounted on blown to the ground.

While the wind warnings have ended, we could be in for more snow.

Up to 2 cm of snow expected to fall tomorrow morning.
