We experienced very strong winds for a few days last week and we’ve had quite a windstorm on Thursday night, actually it was the wee hours of Friday morning. The wind was howling at 60 with gusts of up to 90 kmh. I haven’t seen any damage in my neighbourhood but it was a different story downtown. The strong winds blew the windows of a hotel parkade and this “forced police to close several streets for fear more glass would rain down from other buildings onto pedestrians and vehicles,” according to the Winnipeg Free Press. Also, one vehicle was struck and the windshield smashed by a falling window pane. And a huge oak tree snapped and fell on this guy’s Dodge Caravan. Nobody was hurt though.
