Tens of thousands of people are without power this morning in the Greater Toronto Area and southern Ontario, following a horrendous ice storm that rocked the province this weekend.

High winds of up to 100 km/hr in some areas, heavy rainfall and ice pellets resulted in snapped limbs from trees, downing power lines and poles, and hundreds of collisions and flight cancellations.

And while winds have started to die down, a rainfall warning is still in effect for the City of Toronto, with Environment Canada forecasting rainfall amounts in the 20 to 30 mm range before things taper off later today.

While many of us heeded Environment Canada’s warnings and stayed indoors, others headed outside to capture the storm and its aftermath.

For those of us who weren’t so brave, check out top photos and videos of this weekend’s powerful ice storm in Toronto.
