If Ontarians were looking for a free sound and light show in the city last night, they sure got it! In the early hours of Tuesday morning, a massive thunderstorm in Ontario rolled through the province, waking up residents from Ottawa to Toronto. According to tweets from the people in Ottawa, the storm was so strong that it felt like the world was ending, with recorded winds of up to 103.4 km/h rocking the capital city.\nOn Tuesday afternoon, experts warned Ontario residents about the incoming storm, as severe weather warnings were put in place by Environment Canada province-wide. By approximately 1:30 a.m., people in Ottawa were starting to wake up, gathering at their windows to watch the spectacular and terrifying light show that was taking place outside.\nAs the storm continued into the early hours, residents took to Twitter to share photos and videos of the extreme thunder and lightning, as well as to connect with others who had been disturbed by the noise. In a post on Tuesday night, one user wrote, “Hello fellow Ottawans who have been woken up by this crazy storm and are now angrily checking Twitter until they either go back to sleep or have to drag their tired arse into work! How are ya? #ONStorm.”\nIn response, another Twitter user agreed, “That was a STORM!”\nThe maximum wind speed was 103.4 km/h since Wed 02:00 at "OTTAWA CDA RCS" #ONStorm— WX Ottawa (@wc_ottawa) September 4, 2019\nThat was a STORM !— Grant Sheahan (@MrFrigidaire) September 4, 2019\nAnyone else feel like the world is ending???#ottweather #ONStorm— No Look Drop Pass (@BrianJKemp) September 4, 2019\nOk this is seriously crazy. #ONStorm— T.

Sharing her own video clip of the storm, one Twitter user wrote, “Looks like I wasn’t the only person mesmerized by tonight’s #ONStorm. Quite the impressive show #Thor put on.”\nThe same person responded to their own post shortly after, writing, “And the lightning has started up again.

It was nice to finally see some pretty good lightning this summer and the rain was badly needed. #QuinteWest #ONStorm pic.twitter.com/ZwDegse27U— 🇨🇦 Mark (Bundy) Kennedy 🇨🇦 (@MarkKennedyQW) September 4, 2019\nOmg!!!
