FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Following Monday’s strong winds, of up to 90 km/h, the City is reporting damage to trees across Fort St. John.

According to City Staff, damage to trees has been experienced in many parks and trails.

Some of the areas within the City to receive extensive damage include Mathews Park, Kin Park, Toboggan Hill Park and the Fish Creek Community Forest.

In the meantime, as crews work to clear the damaged trees, they are asking the public to stay away from those hazardous areas.

Along with wind damage, many B.C. Hydro customers around the Peace Region had experienced outages due to the strong winds, when trees blew over and fell on power lines.
