Wind warnings for Niagara today

Batten down the hatches its windy out there.

Winds will be gusting up to 90 km/hr with gusts up to 100 km/hr near the Lake Erie shore as a cold front moves in. 

And those winds may be responsible for several power outages this hour in Welland.

We are getting reports power is out in the area of Woodlawn Road and naigara College after a hydro pole fell.

Welland hydro crews are on scene.

Environment Canada says the winds will begin to slowly diminish this afternoon.

Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur. Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions due to high winds.
