Environment Canada confirmed yesterday that major tree damage on Monday south of Renfrew and near Mississippi Lake, Ontario was caused by straight line winds in a micro burst reaching speeds of up to 110km/h. Damage was widespread as well as a few injuries. Here in Quebec power remains out to at least 2000 customers with crews being called back from vacation to deal with the storm damage.
