Brampton homes badly damaged during powerful wind storm
Nobody injured as homes under construction appear to shift from foundation
At least two homes in Brampton were seriously damaged by powerful wind and rain late Wednesday afternoon.
Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for the storm system that swept through Toronto and parts of the GTA around 6 p.m. on Wednesday.
Peel Regional Police tweeted out an image of two under-construction homes that were seriously damaged by strong wind and rain on Quintette Close, a street in a new subdivision between Brampton and Bolton.
Nobody was injured.
Peel police were alerted to the incident by firefighters, though a police spokesperson said they won't be investigating.
Housing inspectors will likely need to be called in, police said, to evaluate the damage.
