This afternoon’s thunderstorm has hit Montreal hard as high winds and heavy rains have caused power outages in several areas.

A severe thunderstorm watch was issued for Montreal and surrounding areas earlier today.

The storm watch has since ended for:

  • Châteauguay – La Prairie area
  • Laval area
  • Montréal Island area
  • Longueuil – Varennes area

Over 45,000 Hydro-Quebec customers have been left without power. The company says its teams are on standby and are ready to intervene as soon as power outages are happening.
