Nearly 50,000 customers were without power across southern Ontario after an intense storm battered the province on Sunday, bringing heavy winds, rain, hail and possible funnel clouds.
The outages were spread over an area from Lake Huron to Toronto. The utility company Hydro One said it hopes to restore service to many of its customers by later Sunday night.
Toronto Hydro was also reporting multiple outages across the city including one at Yorkdale Shopping Centre.
