Severe Weather Cripples Parts of Ontario and Quebec, Killing at Least Five

A severe thunderstorm that swept parts of Ontario and Quebec on Saturday killed at least five people and left hundreds of thousands of people without power.

Winds blew down trees and power lines from Sarnia to Ottawa, with gusts reaching as high as 132 km/h at the Kitchener airport. At this time, Environment Canada cannot confirm that a tornado touched down on Saturday.

Emergency alerts were issued early Saturday afternoon, warning residents of the GTA to take cover if they noticed severe weather approaching. Drivers were also advised to slow down and prepare to stop if visibility decreased.

Additional warnings were issued for eastern parts of Ontario, as well as Ottawa before ending later on in the afternoon.

As of early Sunday morning, about 269,000 Hydro One customers were still without power. (Hydro One)
