Heavy rains and wind over the weekend caused carnage late last night at the Hidden Valley Seniors Park on Florence Lake Road in Langford, with a tree falling across four mobile homes.

One home was crushed Sunday night, while the other three sustained minor damage. One car was damaged as well and no one was injured.

The couple who live in the destroyed home have been put up in a hotel by the managers of the park, according to neighbours on the scene.

Tree removal crews were still working on cutting and removing the tree at around 11 a.m. Monday (Nov. 15).

An eyewitness said multiple trees fell down the slope above the park last night, adding that trees fall down there all the time. Another man said the community response in the area had been swift to help out the people impacted.
