Windstorm wreaks havoc in and around the city

Wind slowed down the Exo trains Friday. Bricks fell off a Park Ex façade and injured a man passing by; a man was killed by a falling tree in Bromont. Part of a church roof was ripped up in the Village.

The Hydro-Quebec power outage map is a crazy quilt Friday evening. Andy Riga says on Twitter that there are more than 2000 separate breaks in Quebec, and some people may be out for days. Hydro-Quebec says this is nothing like the 1998 ice storm because the main grid hasn’t been affected. It just takes time to go around and fix all the minor breaks from fallen trees and other wind damage.
