The province of Ontario, Canada had a wind warning yesterday for many communities and cities. Even the Burlington Skyway highway bridge had to be shutdown for safety. Today, there are hydro utilities still repairing power lines and restoring electricity to neighbourhoods. Rain was in motion in some areas so flooding was a concern as well.
The windstorm is being blamed for at least two deaths in Ontario.

One, a forestry worker, was killed after a tree fell on him in Milton, while the other was killed after he came "in contact with live wires" in Hamilton. Police said the second man tried to clear wires from a roadway.

A third man was killed late Friday while crossing near an intersection in Toronto while power was out in the area.
