Update: Murphy now re-opened after hydro pole repair

Utility crews have cleared the downed pole from Murphy Road and traffic is now flowing normally.

Strong winds means there is potential for materials blowing onto streets, falling tree branches and power outages.

Police are encouraging residents to take some simple steps to keep everyone safe and secure such as: securing loose items, including waste bins and Halloween decorations; and clearing storm sewer grates and catch basins of leaves.

In case of power outages treat intersections as four-way stops and only drive if you must.
