Thunderstorms ripped through Ontario last night and the photos are wild
This week's stormy weather in Toronto and across Ontario has lit up the sky with some spectacular shows and some people managed to capture photos and video.
The stormy weather was predicted with Environment Canada saying Toronto could get up to 50 mm of rain on the city within just a single hour.
With the brutal heat wave Toronto is experiencing this week rain would be a reprieve, and in Windsor, they got buck loads of rain.

People woke up around 3:30 a.m. to a powerful storm.
RT @DaveJewellOHL: Powerful storms rolling through #Windsor at 330am Thurs with heavy rain, incredible lightning, and "you're awake now" thunder. One of the better shows in recent years. #ShareYourWeather #onstorm @ONWeatherWatch @weathernetwork @CTVWind… pic.twitter.com/TBWhktm5cR— Mike Kakuk (@radiomike519) August 12, 2021
Lightening created an "awesome display" in the early morning.
At 5:05am this morning one of the many “crawler” lightning bolts came shooting across the sky. What an awesome display this morning. @weathernetwork @MikeOlbinski @LightningsViral #onstorm pic.twitter.com/XT17iJuIo6— KevinJGilbert (@kevjgilly) August 11, 2021
The storm rolled through Cambridge.
Some managed to capture photos just as the lightning struck.

Dark, moody skies were still on the horizon on Thursday morning.
If you missed last night's storm, the wild weather is not over yet.
