Dr. John Soles points to masts on the top of the Clearwater Medical Clinic building that were damaged by a vehicle driving through the parking lot sometime during the weekend.

The telephone and fibre-optic lines were ripped out of their connections in the basement. This was significant because the staff rely on the fibre-optic for medical records communication.

Soles credited Telus crews for working into the night to get the system back online.
