Wind Warning in effect for Perth County

During the storm, heavy rain, fierce winds, and severe thunderstorms whipped through much of southern Ontario, courtesy of a potent Colorado low with widespread impact felt right across the province. All Westario customers in Port Elgin and Lucknow also continued to experienced unplanned outages due to damage caused by the windstorm.

It was a rough start to the week Monday morning as a windstorm knocked out power to almost 1,200 Hydro One customers in the west end, including three schools.

Winds will peak early this evening, and will ease near midnight.

The outage area stretched from Windsor, Ont., in the south to the Sudbury, Ont., area in the north, and all the way east to the Ottawa area.

There were no outages reported in London on Monday, but in the region surrounding the city, Hydro One crews were dealing with multiple situations, including in parts of St. Thomas, Strathroy, Port Stanley and Woodstock. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible, Environment Canada said warned.

A special weather statement has ended for Toronto, but a wind warning is still in effect.

Shortly after 4 p.m., Peel police said sheets of drywall were blowing on a Highway 401 westbound ramp from Hurontario Street.

Other GTA police services, including Halton police, are also reporting similar incidents of hydro wires falling.

On Sunday afternoon, Environment Canada issued a wind warning for London, Parkhill, Strathory, Komoka and parts of Middlesex County. Gusts were expected to be 90 to 110 km/h.

Hydro One says its crews have been working flat out to restore power for thousands of customers after a ferocious wind storm.
