There have been many reports of flooding and power outages today when the GTA was hit with a flash storm today around 4:30 p.m.
The storm lasted about 20 to 30 minutes. Environment Canada released a severe thunderstorm warning which ended around 5:00 p.m.
Many social media users uploaded photos of fallen trees, traffic lights and floods with the hashtag, #ONStorm.
A fallen tree caused a temporary street closure on a part of Bay Street.
Even the Toronto Eaton Centre experienced a flood due to the powerful storm.
As of 7:00 p.m., Toronto Hydro confirms in a tweet that approximately 16,500 people are without power but crews are working to restore power by tonight, but smaller outages may continue tomorrow.
