West Shore RCMP responded to the incident at 12:28 p.m. when a woman saw the entire scaffolding detach from the complex containing Pet Smart, Golf Town and La Vie en Rose. An officer at the scene said there were no injuries and no vehicles were damaged.
The majority of the scaffolding fell within the zoned off space that crews were working on for a new Marshalls store, the second location in Greater Victoria. Clean-up crews were seen on site beginning to take down scaffolding just before 1 p.m.
Environment Canada warned of strong winds between 60 to 90 km an hour on Monday. This storm is strong enough to potentially cause damage to buildings, such as roof shingles and windows. The strong winds will lighten by early Monday.
