According to the story "Woman sues bar for serving her alcohol after she causes $10m home explosion" (January 17, 2023):
"Daniella Leis, 26, made national headlines when she crashed her car into a house at 450 Woodman Avenue, breaking a gas line that later triggered an explosion, causing damages pegged at C$13m to C$20m ($9.8m to $14.7m in USD)."
"Damages?" No, "damages" are monies awarded by a court, typically as the result of a lawsuit. What was caused in this case was "damage" (no S). The money paid to repair said damage, as ordered by a judge, is "damages".
