After our crazy storm here a week ago Monday one of the power lines near Michipicoten First Nation went down. Since there is no road access to that area crews were called in to rebuild the tower on the Harbour docks and then they had it airlifted back into place. You can read the news article here…
Apparently the winds were recorded at 101.8km/hr- so at that speed it would take just over 2 hours to fly to the Soo from here.
Here are 2 pictures from Joel Cooper. The first one is the rebuilding of the tower on the harbour docks, the second is of the helicopter at the airport.
