Large parts of Ontario will have to deal with a potential ice build-up and power outages as freezing rain hit the province Sunday and is expected to continue overnight and into Monday.
According to the Weather Network, “Conditions in Ontario will manifest as an ice storm for parts of the region and could bring significant ice buildup that has the potential to cause power outages and make travel nearly impossible at times.”
Experts are concerned of the possibility of extended periods of freezing rain which could lead to snapping tree branches and downed power lines.
Environment Canada has warned drivers that conditions on Monday will be poor as “surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.”
They’re also asking drivers to adjust to changing road conditions.
A plane crash resulted in seven people, including three children, dying in a wooded area near Kingston, Ontario, according to CTV News.
The crash took place late Wednesday evening when an American-registered Piper PA-32 crashed before it could reach its destination of Kingston.
Although the final destination was Quebec City, the pilot decided to land in Kingston after he discovered a communication error.
Soon after, the plane crashed, hitting the ground at a very steep incline. This is presumed to have occurred at around 5:00 p.m. Unfortunately, everyone on board the aircraft died.
There is currently an on-going investigation into the plane crash, which usually requires the Transportation Safety Board of Canada to interview witnesses and read through maintenance footage. When this is done, the police will have a greater understanding of what caused the crash.
