A lot of rain was dumped over a short period of time along with strong, damaging winds that tore the roofs off of houses in Angus and spurred about 30,000 power outages across the region.

The storms impacted a wide area with communities experiencing varying degrees of severity. 

The first round of storms to impact southern Ontario pushed into the Bruce Peninsula area Tuesday morning. York Regional Police said four people were injured at Bethesda Grange Golf Course as lightning struck the area early afternoon.
