Cleanup underway after strong winds rip through Maritimes

Cleanup is underway in New Brunswick after wind gusts of more than 110km/hr ripped their way through the province over the weekend.

Though winds downed trees and snapped power lines across the province, New Brunswick's Emergency Measures Organization says it could have been much worse.

EMO's Robert Duguay tells Radio-Canada the storm had little impact on infrastructure like roads and buildings.

On Sunday the province said it could take up to 72 hours to restore power to everyone.

Several warming centres have been set up across the province and can be found on the government's website.
