Toronto in awe of damage caused by strong winds
Ontario continues to reel this morning from the fallout of a wind storm that snapped construction cranes in half, toppled a giant KFC bucket into someone's car and left some 80,000 people without power on Wednesday.
The severe winds (and yes, snow) had died down in Toronto as of Thursday morning, but not before claiming a lot of trees...

And garbage bins...
And road signs.
A lot of road signs.

Wigs have been lost, and flights have been delayed.

China Eastern #MU208 back in service after a baggage container was blown into its engine this afternoon. Flight from Toronto to Shanghai was delayed 7 hours while the damage was accessed/repaired.

In some parts of the region, gusts nearing 100 km/h blew bricks clean off of buildings.
Construction equipment proved similarly vulnerable to the storm, as evidenced by a now-famous broken crane.

Kennedy Commons in Scarborough almost lost its sign too, though perhaps with less expensive consequences.
Fortunately, no serious injuries have been reported in connection with last night's wind storm – and hey, at least the teens are having fun!
