Ontario windstorm causes almost $400M in property damage
A group that represents insurance companies says a ferocious spring wind storm that swept through southern Ontario last month caused 380 million dollars in property damage.
The storm -- which brought gusts of over 100 kilometres an hour -- toppled trees, knocked out power for hundreds of thousands of people and briefly grounded flights at Toronto's Pearson International Airport.
Three deaths were connected to the May 4th storm.
The Insurance Bureau of Canada says it was the most expensive event for Ontario's insurers since the 2013 floods in Toronto, when they paid out nearly a billion dollars in claims.
