Strong winds result in power disruptions across Endmoor

The strong wind storm accompanied by rain that hit the district on Wednesday resulted in downed trees and power outages.

BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS — The strong wind storm accompanied by rain that hit the district on Wednesday resulted in downed trees and power outages that carried on from Wednesday evening into Thursday. A person is pretty helpless without electricity these days. Kudos goes to the power service people who worked day and night to restore the power.

Now folks have the task of picking up branches and leaves in their yards and retrieving anything that was loose from wherever they can find it.

Congratulations to the Byemoor 4-H Beef Club members on their successful achievement day at the Stettler District Show and Sale on May 22 to 23.
