Lambton OPP and other emergency services are continuing the clean up after a storm passed through the Grand Bend area at just after 7:00 p.m. on Sunday (July 27).
OPP and emergency crews responded to numerous reports of downed trees and power lines overnight and are still working to restore power and clear debris.
All of the main roads are open and most of the side streets are passable. Beach O’Pines appears to be the area most affected by the storm and some streets in that area are not yet open.
OPP officers continue to patrol the area and to direct traffic as required while the clean-up continues. Motorists are asked to please exercise caution when travelling through the area as traffic slow-downs and intermittent closures may be encountered while the clean-up process progresses.
The Grand Bend Legion is open for regular business hours today and is available for anyone who is in need of shelter.
