Winnipeggers react to weekend storm – Winnipeg

WINNIPEG – As residents around the city stepped outside Sunday morning, many were greeted with a major clean-up from the weekend storm.

Robert Vouriot was shocked when he opened his basement door and saw shoes and hockey equipment floating in water.

“It was probably about eight to 10 inches,” said Vouriot who lives in St. Norbert. “You could’t see any ground.”

He hasn’t had power in the house for more than five hours making it even harder to clean up the flood damage with his family.

“We’ve stripped everything down, I threw out a bunch of stuff… there’s a bunch of paneling and wood to dump off in the back of the truck now,” he said.

Thousands of Winnipeggers were affected by another severe summer storm that swept through the province over the weekend.

Businesses like Tinkertown also have a huge clean up ahead.

“When I came in this whole fence was tipped over in the water,” Tinkertown manager Kyle Kiernicki said.

Tinkertown closed down for the entire weekend due to the storm.

This is the first time the amusement park has closed for an entire weekend this year.

“Now we have to clean up branches, use sand bags and continue to use pumps everywhere… hoping to get rid of all this water.”

Manitoba Hydro said crews continue to be extremely busy working at restoring power to hundreds of people in the city Sunday.

“We’ve had far more crews on this weekend than we would normally have… we opened an additional office to be able to manage the outages,” Andrea Gruber from Hydro said.
