High winds are responsible for this downed tree at the rear of 222 Finlayson Street. No one was hurt in the incident. Environment Canada meteorologist Geoff Coulson says wind gusts were measured at the Thunder Bay Airport at 67 kilometres per hour.
Construction crews are still hard at work at Prince Arthur's Landing. Project Manager Gary Wood says the mild winter and spring have allowed crews to get ahead of schedule. Wood says crews are finishing work on installing water mains, and general site clean up. He says the current phase should wrap up shortly and then work will shift towards landscaping for the Water Garden pavilion and baggage building.
No one is injured after high winds snapped a tree on some power lines at 1037 Huron Avenue. The incident took place just after 10 am Friday morning. Fire and hydro crews were at the scene. The winds are forecast to reach up to 60 km/hr.
