Wind storm takes out more trees in Evergreen cemetery
City works crews went to work on storm damage clean up this week after the wind on Saturday took down two trees in the city cemetery. The same storm that left thousands of residents without power in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island passed through the valley on Saturday morning. While the storm saw wind speeds of over 100 kilometres an hour on the coast, the short lived gusts did much less damage in the Boundary.
Wayne Kopan, city works superintendent, said that the two trees that were blown down in the cemetery were the only ones that the city had to clean up. “We didn’t get any other reports of trees down except in the cemetery,” said Kopan.
