High winds in Port Alice — some hitting reported speeds of 160-km/hr — completely flattened the front section of the Supply Warehouse. The winds came in about 7:30 p.m. Jan. 22, and uprooted and blew down trees across power lines resulting in a four-hour power-outage in the village. The high winds also uprooted trees in the Legion parking lot, but no other building damage was reported.
