The videos and photos of the Ontario storm that's tearing its way across the region are pretty remarkable.
Winds and rains are supposed to ease by Monday morning, so until then, hang on to your hats, Ontario!
Towns and cities all over the province had to deal with the wind, which was making quite a stir in Norfolk County, ON.

And a Toronto apartment building on the Harbourfront had the glass on their balconies shattered by the winds.

Those winds could reach 110 km/h and bring heavy rain with them.

The storm wasn't all bad — one Twitter user said the storm gave her some welcome gardening help.

All sorts of trees and fences were blown down by the storm, which even carried this shed 20 feet out into the road.
