After the Storm: Two Salt Spring Island Roads

The number of trees that fell on the afternoon of Dec. 20, 2018 on Salt Spring Island cannot be calculated, but video footage of select areas can at least give some idea of the impact. 

This video includes roadside footage of Langs Road, at the northern head of St. Mary Lake, and Channel Ridge Drive in the Channel Ridge subdivision. Both areas were among the hardest hit on the island.

The Channel Ridge Drive footage was taken soon after the storm, when numerous trees  throughout the island were still hanging dangerously on lines and over roads. 

The Langs Road footage was taken more than two weeks after the storm hit, indicating the amount of work done and still to be done to restore properties in the area.
