Storm Batters Southwestern Ontario and the GTA



The massive thunderstorm that rocked Toronto and Southwestern Ontario yesterday has been over for several hours now, but the cleanup is still ongoing. The storm whipped up tornados (map) that flattened houses and brought down power lines across the region (20,000 customers in Southwestern Ontario are still without power).

As has become commonplace in our high speed society, dozens of videos of the storm were uploaded to YouTube almost immediately after the storm ended. The video above is fascinating, as it shows just how quickly the storm engulfed Toronto.
