Downed tree blocks road in Mapleton

High winds and rain which battered the region on Nov. 24 caused damage throughout the area and briefly shut down a local road.

Early Monday morning Wellington OPP tweeted a warning that Concession 12 between Sideroad 15 and Wellington Road 11 was blocked due to a downed tree. Around 9pm police reported the road was open, but were warning the public to stay clear of trees and hydro lines due to high winds.

“If you see downed hydro lines call 911 and do not approach them,” police cautioned.
