A storm with strong winds blowing in excess of 100 km/hr blew through Bow Island this afternoon, leaving many downed trees and power outages. Some areas of the community remained without power at 4:20 p.m.
Members of Bow Island fire department, town crews, and RCMP continue monitoring the damage.
The Town of Bow Island is urging people to stay away from trees, which may still be unstable and power lines. Also, town and emergency crews need space to do their work.
