Strong winds on Oct. 24, 2021 resulted in waves splashing against the Ogden Point Breakwater.

Strong winds are in the forecast on Thursday and Friday for the North Island, prompting a wind warning from Environment Canada.

Southeast wind is expected to reach 90 km/h due to a “very strong” frontal system crossing the north coast.

The winds may cause damage and are expected to occur Thursday morning and again on Friday afternoon.
