Hurricane Irene hit land on the Eastern seaboard of the U.S. and what was left of it (after much destruction and many deaths) actually made its way to the Maritimes in Canada (where I was) - we got some heavy downpours (I was right on the Bay of Fundy, an inlet called Courtenay Bay) but mostly we just had a day of wild, wild wind.... with damaging in gusts, and many trees were knocked down... in the centre of the town, at King's Square, an old, longstanding one was ripped up at ground level. Still, we were lucky. Other places in the province had a lot of flooding.

spent hurricane still wild enough to uproot ancient trees

l'ouragan est passé encore assez de vent pour déraciner les vieux arbres
