At least four people have died and about 900,000 homes have been left without electricity after strong storms hit the eastern provinces of Ontario and Quebec in Canada.
Ontario police said three people died and others were injured due to the storms.
Images posted on social media from across the province showed scattered debris and fallen trees damaging homes and cars.
A man was killed when a tree fell on the trailer where he was standing on Saturday.
Meanwhile, according to Peel Regional Police, a woman in her 70s was killed after being hit by a tree in the town of Brampton.
The storm was strong enough for Environment Canada to issue urgent intrusive broadcast signals going to television and radio stations and cell phones.
Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson said staff were “assessing the damage and threats on the ground.”
According to Environment Canada, winds of up to 132 km / h were recorded in Kitchener, Ontario, while blasts of up to 120 km / h were observed in Toronto and Ottawa.
Canadian authorities have said that although winds at such speeds are not so rare, the storm was unusual in that it covered such a large geographical area.
