Two homes were heavily damaged near Surerus ball diamonds. A piece of one home landed on the rough of another home causing serious damage. The Fort St. John Fire Department is still trying to determine if there is another home that has been damaged. Residents were at home at the time of the incident and thankfully weren’t injured.

The other home near Surerus Ball diamonds had most of its roof removed by the wind and at least one of the ball diamonds has been damaged.

At least eight residents who lived in the homes will be provided with a place to stay by Emergency Social Services.

It is also believed another funnel cloud may have touched down near 114a avenue in the Country view estates area. Several homes have been damaged in that neighbourhood.

The Fire Department also reports they have received several calls of homes that have seen singles or siding removed by the strong winds.
