Storm Wreaks Havoc In Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on July 26, 2010

Large branches still lay out in many parts of Ottawa after high winds swept through on Friday.

The 1600 block of Chestnut was a wild scene as trees fell on two different cars.  Roderick Cossman of Texas told police he was backing up trying to avoid debris when a tree fell on his Toyota Tundra.  No one was hurt.

At the same time, Brian Campbell of Ottawa had his Toyota Scion parked in the 1600 block of Chestnut when a tree fell on it.

Police also took a report of a boat being blown across the Value City Parking lot and hitting two parked pickups that are for sale.  The boat rested on the rear of Ashley Hinkelman’s truck.
