“Amazed at how many people think I sprayed foam on the place, too funny. Our area here in WNY (western New York) was pummeled by violent wind the last few days, over 160,000 lost power–some still don’t have it,” the photographer wrote on Facebook.
Residents of Newfoundland and Labrador was also hit by a violent wind storm over the weekend. Environment Canada said the storm, which produced wind gusts up to 158 km/h, was the strongest to hit the province in more than a decade.
Tens of thousands of residents lost power as a result of the storm, which caused major damage to buildings in the area.
