ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - A Newfoundland woman says she's lucky to be alive after a canoe came through the side of her house during the weekend windstorm that battered much of the province and left many without power through Monday.
"The wind picked it up and just brought it right in through the side of my house. Right through the siding, Gyprock, insulation. It cracked off my headboard. I was in bed at the time. It came through everything," said Theresa Power, an office worker from Freshwater, N.L., an hour's drive northwest of St. John's.
