Last night's lightning storm was unlike anything Toronto has seen before
Last night Toronto got quite the show as lightning storms took over the skies.
Yesterday Environment Canada called for severe thunderstorms and large hail over the city.
And it got just that in the form of large, late-night storm clouds that filled up with flashes of light.
They were the result of two separate thunderstorms moving from northwest to southeast about half an hour apart.
The #onstorm hashtag showed people from all over the region capturing footage of the storms as they raged on last night.
Lightning powered over the city for long stretches, making the skyline look like something out of a movie.
The lightning portion of the storms latest about 30 minutes, with flashes occurring almost continuously.
Some regions saw power outages while rain continued into this morning.
I do not think I'll ever see this again. Constant lightning over Toronto skies. Bear in mind that this video has been captured in real-time. 51 seconds of lightning show. #onstorm #Lightning pic.twitter.com/AzmaAO7Ob3— ipek (@ipekcenkci) June 3, 2020
According to The Weather Network, there's still a chance of more thunderstorms coming this afternoon.
