Booth and Eddy streets across the Ottawa River are expected to remain closed until 2 or 3 a.m. Thursday morning as emergency crews deal with debris blown onto the Chaudière Bridge by high winds.

According to Ottawa police, the roof from a building at 6 Booth St. on Albert Island, between Wellington Street and Alexandre-Taché Boulevard in Gatineau, was split in two by the winds, which have produced gusts in the area in excess of 80 km/h.
