Wind damage

The wind is creating some headaches in Timmins today for property owners. A cottage property at Kamiskotia lake had the roof literally peeled back by heavy winds blowing from the lake. In the city, the roof at the Aurora apartment building on Suzanne Street was damaged by the wind as well. Most of the fascia and roof materials were blown off the roof and onto the surrounding grounds. At 11 a.m. winds at the Timmins Airport were reported gusting to 67 KM per hour. The problem of trees falling onto hydro lines has also created power outages in many parts of the city.
