    Strange Clouds & Damaging Winds hit M.R.D.


    by Ray

    It was a very hot summer day, blue sky hardly a cloud and then about 8 P.M. it got very dark and the winds picked up and then the calls started for power lines down and trees and branches starting fires on power poles and transformers blowing all around the Greater Moncton area. Firefighters were going from call to call and NB Power had 80 calls backed up. Riverview Fire were on Glengary and Melody and on Cherry Ct & Point Park. Just as fast as this storm moved into the city, it headed out towards P.E.I. and the sun came back out just before it went down.
