Wind warning cancelled for London region (update)
London Community News
Updated (Oct. 30, 6:30 a.m.): Environment Canada has cancelled the wind warning for the London region.
Environment Canada has issued a wind warning with severe winds of 60 gusting up to 100 km/h beginning this evening. Monitor weather conditions and listen for updated statements.
Hurricane Sandy is forecast to track from the Atlantic ocean into the New Jersey shoreline this evening as it transitions into a powerful post-tropical storm.
Winds will increase out of the north to northeast today at 40 gusting to 60 km/h in most areas. They will intensify further this evening to 60 gusting at times to 90 km/h accompanied by heavier bands of rain as Sandy begins to move across Pennsylvania. Winds may be even stronger in the Niagara and Sarnia regions where gusts over 100 km/h are possible. They may also gust a little stronger over higher terrain.
Winds will begin to ease below warning criteria on Tuesday morning.
Sporadic power outages are quite likely across the warned regions due to falling limbs and the odd toppled tree taking out hydro lines.
