The winds have been fairly constant for the past few weeks. They have been clocked at 120kms. The following video is a clip that I took from our living room window on Apr 3/16 at 5:00am. The wind was on the corner of the house, where our bedroom is and it woke me. It was howling..
We lived in Ontario for eight years and I believe we only had winds a few times, like I had been used to in Newfoundland Labrador.
For many years we lived in a house that we had built, on a hill, overlooking Conception Bay. There were many occasions when the house would shudder in the wind. Thankfully, the house was well built but it was still a little nerve wrecking when you got sustained winds with heavier gusting.
The following is a copy of the wind warning report:
Strong winds with severe and damaging gusts are expected or occurring. Very strong westerly winds gusting as high as 100 to 130 km/h will continue today. These strong winds are expected to gradually diminish this afternoon into this evening. Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions due to high winds. Wind warnings are issued when there is a significant risk of damaging winds. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada
Yes, it's windy.
