Use caution if driving into Port aux Basques this morning. High winds are making conditions treacherous for high-sided vehicles.

Police were detouring traffic through Grand Bay West this morning after a tractor trailer jack-knifed on the Trans-Canada Highway near the Visitor Information Centre.

A large section of siding has also blown off the back of the Grand Bay Mall. Insulation could be seen blowing around, and the inside of the building was visible.

Environment Canada's weather station is not reporting current conditions, but winds are forecast to gust to 100 kilometres an hour this morning.
