Huge Ontario Storms Ripped Through The Province Last Weekend & The Photos Are Terrifying

A wave of intense Ontario storms swept through the province over the weekend leaving a trail of destruction in their wake.

According to The Weather Network, a series of severe thunderstorms hit southern parts of the province from Michigan on Sunday evening, travelling at over 100 km/h.

The fast-moving storms created a variety of dangerous conditions including damaging gusts, torrential rain and quarter-sized hail.

The heavy downpours caused flood damage in Mount Brydges, a small town outside of London, Ontario.

TWN also reported that over 25,000 hydro customers lost power as a result of fallen branches and large trees.

The lightning was so constant that one resident claimed it created a strobe light effect.

There were multiple reports of falling tress throughout the night, with limbs strewn onto roads.

Driving conditions also looked less than optimal, with gusting winds and heavy rain.

More storms are expected this week, with a chance of tornadoes on Tuesday.
