A few weeks ago I received a call from a colleague who was in a bit of a bind. She needed to get to the east end as soon as possible because she heard there was a big flood, and we were sending out Beaches South Riverdale edition, iirc, to press the same day. This colleague doesn’t have a car and it would have taken her a lot longer to get there via public transit.
I’m glad I decided to help her out, as I got to take some surreal shots and hear a gripping story of how a tree fell on the bedroom of a woman who was asleep /w her four-year-old daughter. Crazy! The tree did serious property damage but no one was hurt. Hard to believe considering the magnitude of the collision.
Here are some shots from that day. If you’d like to read the story, you can do so here: http://mytowncrier.ca/tree-crashes-into-beach-home-during-storm.html
