The high wind is playing havoc with electricity.

Entegrus reports sporadic outages in Chatham and Wallaceburg due to tree branches striking power lines because of the wind.

Meanwhile, Merlin is without power because the wind blew down several hydro poles.

Bothwell experienced a recent outage, but it has since been restored.

Chatham-Kent OPP also closed Highway 40 between Green Valley Line and Cedar Hedge Line due to downed power lines. No word on when it will reopen.
