A wind storm ravaged its way through parts of Southern Ontario and Quebec Wednesday, causing thousands of dollars of damage along the way. With winds hitting speeds of 100 kilometres per hour, the storm wreaked some serious havoc on residents, knocking out power lines and causing a ton of property damage along the way.
According to Ontario Hydro, approximately 80,000 homes were left without power, some still without until early this morning. The destruction made its way downtown Toronto, knocking glass from building, spinning construction cranes out of control and leaving a number of downed trees in its wake. See some of the destruction that yesterday’s storm had on Ontario:
Winds now approaching 100 km/h with my anemometer measuring a gust to 92 km/h.
