A strong storm pounded Newfoundland Yesterday.

There were several reports of damage.

Two sheds collapsed from the wind in Lark Harbour. Boats were overturned, there are even vehicles overturned and thrown off the road.

Up the Northern Peninsula, traffic was brought to a standstill following whiteout conditions.
