The same storm system which brought severe weather to Ontario and Quebec – including tornadoes – crossed through New Brunswick overnight.
Strong low pressure caused gusty winds up to 72 km/h at the Greater Moncton International Airport which turned out to be the windiest day since 02 June.
A wind gust of 85 km/h was reported in Charlo.
NB Power said almost 10,000 customers lost power at the peak of the storm thanks to trees and branches falling on utility lines.
Incidentally, fall officially arrives later tonight with the autumnal equinox at 10:54 pm ADT.
