Storms Kill At Least 8 In Canada, Leave Half A Million Without Power
(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)
The death toll from powerful thunderstorms in Canada's two most
populous provinces this weekend rose to at least eight, authorities
said on Sunday, as emergency crews continued a massive clean-up to
restore power to half a million people, Trend reports citing Reuters .
The storms, which lasted more than two hours Saturday afternoon
and packed the power of a tornado, left a trail of destruction in
parts of Ontario and Quebec. Wind gusts as strong as 132 km (82
miles) per hour felled trees, uprooted electric poles and toppled
many metal transmission towers, utility companies said.
