Many residents were left without power on Monday after a wind storm ripped through the Boundary overnight Sunday.
Drive BC was warning motorists to beware of downed trees on the road Monday morning, and in the West Boundary, a stretch of road between Midway and Rock Creek was closed for much of the day as crews worked on a downed power line.
According to the Fortis BC outages map, some homes in Christina Lake were still without power Tuesday morning, as were homes between Grand Forks and Greenwood along Highway 3. As many as 920 customers between Rock Creek and Carmi were without power, though the majority of power in those areas had been restored by Tuesday morning.
School District 51 announced Tuesday morning West Boundary Elementary would be closed for the day, but Beaverdell Elementary would be open since power had been restored to the area.
In Grand Forks, many structures were impacted by wind and downed trees. Many residents took to social media to share photos of sheds, carports and fences with tree and wind damage.
According to data from the City of Grand Forks weather station, winds peaked around 45 kilometres per hour on Monday.
