Public works and hydro crews continue to work to clear downed trees from municipal roadways to allow for emergency services access, says a media releaser issued by the Municipality of Lambton Shores.
Strong winds caused significant damage to the Grand Bend area on Sunday (July 27), with the most significant area north of Klondyke Road to Grand Bend Main Street.
In the interest of public safety, residents are being urged to stay off closed roads and away from downed power lines. Residents are also asked to be cautious around fallen trees and limbs as some may be unstable and could still fall.
Mayor Bill Weber added his personal appreciation to everyone that has responded to the storm clean-up effort and advised continued caution for individuals working on their own property or moving about the area of storm damage.
Hydro One is on site and is working to restore power. Hydro One reports that the Highway 21 corridor will be energized first. Other areas will be repaired as poles and lines are installed.
The public is urged to stay clear of downed power lines. For the most up to date information regarding hydro service, please visit www.hydroone.com
