Wind warning issued for region

Environment Canada has issued a wind warning for Kingston, Odessa, Frontenac Islands, Napanee, Consecon, Picton and Sandbanks Park. Strong winds that may cause damage are expected.

Wind gusts to 90 km/h are likely across much of the region after a cold front moves through from late afternoon to early evening.

Winds will diminish late this evening as a high pressure ridge moves in.

Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur. Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage. High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break. Power outages are also possible.
