Firefighters also responded to a reported smell of smoke at a home on West Lake Road where there was damage to Hydro lines.

A day of torrential rain and biting wind whirled into a stormy night in Prince Edward County Saturday, damaging trees and knocking out power.
Alexandra Pope, of The Weather Network, reports a peak gust of 102 km/h was recorded at

Point Petre while wind gusted to more than 60 km/h in many parts of southern Ontario Saturday morning and became even stronger later in the day – mostly gusting in the mid-70 km/h mark.
Power was also knocked out for a few hundred County residents last night. Prince Edward County firefighters joined works crews and police at various locations.
Showers are expected to continue today with more rain possible for Monday.
Lake effect showers are common at this time of year, the Weather Network reports, as cold wind passes over the warm waters of the Great Lakes, they can produce heavy showers along the shorelines.
