Strong winds gusting through the region left a Saanich home with a large tree balanced over its roof Saturday morning.
Emergency crews closed Mann Avenue near Savoy Place after a large tree was knocked down in the wind. The tree landed on the power lines connected to a home.
Police say no one was injured, damage to the home was minor and that @SaanichFire has already assessed the scene. Hydro crews are now working to restore power to the neighborhood and Mann Avenue remains blocked off in the area.
