Wintery Blast Hits Durham
Posted by Samantha Casais on 4/5/2018 8:01:00 AM.
High winds and blowing snow made the afternoon and evening drive treacherous at times yesterday. Numerous residents reported property damage, and downed wires were attended to by hydro crews. A statement was issued asking the public to avoid the area around the Durham Regional Headquarters building on Rossland Rd. in Whitby, as there was potential damage due to roofing debris hazards caused by extreme high winds. The weather is expected to mellow out slightly today as winds will diminish, but temperatures will remain well below average for this time of year.
