Several families at Amelia’s Ward were seeking refuge last evening after being displaced by a freak storm with intense rain, and lightning and thunder that ripped through the Mackenzie, Linden community.
The storm, which lasted approximately two hours, also caused damage estimated in the millions to the houses and household possessions of the many residents, who ended up seeking shelter at neighbours, friends and relatives for the night. It was fortunate that no one was injured, residents said.
