190,000 still without power in Ontario after high winds batter province


    Hydro crews are working to revive power throughout southern Ontario after fierce winds on Friday introduced down bushes, blew shingles off roofs and scattered particles throughout the province.

    The windstorm left two males useless. One, a forestry employee, was killed after a tree fell on him in Milton, whereas the opposite was killed making an attempt to clear downed wires in Hamilton.

    Nancy Clark, communications officer for Hydro One, stated 190,000 clients are without power in southwestern, central and japanese Ontario. 

    About 21,000 clients are affected in Toronto, in line with Toronto Hydro.

    Surroundings Canada says a “dynamic” low stress system from the southern U.S. introduced high winds and thunderstorms to southern Ontario.

    Wind gusts of 126 km/hr have been recorded in Hamilton, Ont., 122 km/hr at Waterloo, Ont. airport and 119 km/hr at Toronto’s Pearson Worldwide Airport.
