Prince George, B,.C.- In addition to power outages from Williams Lake to north of Prince George, the storm that roared through the area yesterday also brought grief to some home owners.
Environment Canada had issued a severe thunderstorm watch for Prince George , an advisory that warned of the potential of damaging winds.
At least two homes in Prince George were damaged when trees were snapped and came to rest on the homes, one on College Heights on York Place, the other on Hammond Avenue. In both cases, no one was hurt.
“Definitely some strong winds associated with that storm” says Environment Canada Meteorologist Alyssa Charbonneau “The wind gusts in Prince George peaked at 87 kilometers per hour.”
The gusts were a tad stronger in Williams Lake, where the peak gusts hit 88 kilometers an hour..
