'Major wind storm' expected on Sunday

Environment Canada issued a wind warning Saturday concerning a major wind storm with gusts reaching up to 110 km/h heading for Brant/Brantford, Norfolk, Haldimand and surrounding areas.

A watershed conditions statement issued by the Essex Region Conservation Authority advises the wind may push ice onshore along the western shoreline of Pelee Island and on the Lake Erie shoreline west of Point Pelee. "Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage".

"Strong and gusty southwesterly winds will whip up freshly fallen snow and cause sudden near zero visibility in blowing snow in many areas beginning Sunday afternoon", the agency said just before midnight.

Ennvironment Canada is warning drivers to take caution on the roads. Utility outages may occur.

"We will be working around the clock until everything is up and running", she said. Periods of snow and rain are expected to continue till at least Monday morning. "Wind chimes coming down from 24 storeys, you don't want that to hit somebody".

10 cases of measles now diagnosed in Vancouver outbreak, vaccinations way up
There are 15 cases between the ages of 11 and 18, one between the ages of 19 and 29 and two between the ages of 30 and 39. A Washington state health department has identified another new case of measles, bringing the state total to 66.

Conditions will slowly improve early Monday morning as winds begin to diminish.

"We have offered our assistant to Toronto Hydro and will be working very closely with the Office of Emergency Management", he said.

A special weather statement warns that roads could become slippery and risky as the temperature shifts from minus-2 degrees Celsius Saturday night to 4 C on Sunday.

The weather service says there's a potential for freezing rain Saturday night into Sunday morning, followed by blowing snow Sunday evening. Accompanying snowfall could reduce visibility to near zero.
