Strong winds pummel the Maritimes

tmp_SC20131103-100018-1397133033Winds gusted to 93 km/h at the Greater Moncton International Airport on Friday thanks to an intense Colorado Low which sent gales funneling up the Bay of Fundy.

The Tantramar Marsh between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia recorded the strongest wind gusts in the region – up to 100 km/h – which overturned a transport truck on the Trans Canada Highway near Amherst.

The wind also brought down tree branches and even full trees in some cases.

Rain was less of a factor with this storm than wind with most areas reporting less than 30 mm.
