City crews continue to make progress on the clean up after last nights tornado.
The areas that sustained the greatest damage were near the EC Row Expressway, including Riberdy Road, Kautex Drive, Deziel Drive, and North Service Road.
According to Mayor Drew Dilkens, there were four people injured and three received treatment for non-life threatening injuries in hospital, the fourth chose not to go.
Forestry and Public works crews continue to clean debris from roadways in and around those streets, and the city says that there could be some closures in those areas.
The EC Row Expressway was closed between Jefferson and Walker overnight, but has since reopened.
The Transit Windsor Depot was without power last night, but that has been restored, and service should not be impacted today.
Enwin Utilities continues to restore power and fix downed lines and poles. They estimate that as of 8am only eight properties will not have had their power restored. After the storm hit there were nearly 150 down last night.
Mayor Dilkens is asking residents to avoid driving around to have a look, as crews are still working to clean up debris and remove downed trees and power lines.
