Kitsilano is known for having streets named after trees, not trees on its streets. While the wind devastation of Stanley Park has been all over the news, you wouldn’t know that the wind has also wreaked havoc on our hood if it’s dark when you come & go from your day job. Thanks to local Photoblogger Tom Ryan, we can all have a look at the evidence before the clean-up crew pulled out their chainsaws. SoMisguided over at NowPublic.com also snapped some quick photos of assorted damage in Kits.
Update: James points out that SoMisguided caught some video footage too.

I know, I was there. Big crack, tree fall down, go boom.
