Storm at the Campground

We had a major storm rip through New Denver on Thursday. 10-15 trees in the campground area of New Denver were broken or roots pulled right out of the ground by the 100+ km winds. One family was lucky to run from their camper before it was crushed by a tree. Most of the trees on the beach at the south end of New Denver are gone. Power was out from about 2pm until 10:30pm and phone connection outside New Denver was out until the following afternoon. Many people were on hand to help out.
