Wind hits Wednesday

Chris Walker from Treeworks cuts up a large tree which blew down during a short but intense wind storm Wednesday morning. This tree stood in front of Brennan’s Mens and Ladies Wear on 200 Street in Brookswood, and when it fell at about 9:30 a.m. it narrowly missed three pedestrians who had walked by seconds earlier.

A brief but intense wind storm on Wednesday morning left its mark in many parts of Langley.

Some trees blew down, including one which fell across Zero Avenue which stopped traffic for a time, and one in Brookswood in front of Brennan’s Mens and Ladies Wear.

There were also power outages in a number of parts of Langley. In most locations, the power was out for several hours, but was restored later in the day.
