The storm caused major disruption on our roadways and neighbourhoods.

The East Region OPP would like to thank all community partners for their dedication and hard work during this massive storm.

The excellent service provided by local volunteer fire fighters, EMS, Hydro, tow operators, dispatchers and township employees did not go unnoticed.
