Wow - What a wind on April 28, 2011 !!

Wow what a wind!

I've never seen anything like this in the Niagara Region before. Take a look at some of the pictures below to get an idea of the damage done to the infrastructure and homes in St. Catharines.

These photos show some of the devastation caused by the wind. The city is lucky that the trees had not filled out with leaves. The damage would have been much worse and the electricity outage much longer. As it is, many people were out of electrical power for 2 days and some longer.
