The remains of Hurricane Sandy blew through Cornwall overnight Monday - creating a lot of rattled nerves but otherwise leaving the Seaway City relatively unscathed.
There were reports of some downed tree limbs in Cornwall, and power flickered off and on all night, but there was no major damage.
Environment Canada reports winds topped out at around 50km/h overnight - nowehere near the 90 to 100 km/h gusts that were initially forecast.
Power was out to neary 700 homes in the United Counties as tree limbs took down power lines. Their service is expected to be restored as soon as damage is cleared away.
In other parts of Ontario some 50,000 people are without power - mostly in the southern reaches of the province.Expect some stiff gusts today, but nothing major. The rain is expected to begin to fall later today and overnight. Halloween is still expected to be a wet one.
