Kingston Peninsula Devastated By Ice Storm

The aftermath of the ice storm is hitting the Kingston Peninsula especially hard. Howard Heans, who operates the Harding's Point campground at the Westfield ferry landing, has been without power for over a week. 

Heans telling CHSJ News he drove to Carter's Point and the damage is mind boggling with downed trees covering both sides of the road forcing you to drive down the centre. Heans says, at times, he had to stop and lift trees that were in the way. He's worried what might happen if the winds become gusty.

Heans goes on to say the sound of tree limbs falling in the deafening silence sounded like shotgun blasts.
