High winds were too much for a narrow structure on Leslie Street south of Queen St. last night. The unfinished building snapped like a reed. Fire and police personnel were called to the home around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday for a report that a house under construction was swaying in the wind. The wood frame was “swaying back and forth,” Toronto Fire District Chief Stephan Powell told CBC Toronto.
