Lakeshore littered with debris after wind rips off roof

Strong winds blew the roof off a building near the corner of Lakeshore Boulevard East and Fergus Avenue and onto the stretch of road, closing the Lakeshore temporarily in both direction.

Insulation landed on the sidewalk and road, while shingles and plywood once part of a roof blew onto the road.

The winds were reportedly gusting upwards of 70 km/h in the area on Tuesday afternoon.
