Wind Warning For Toronto

Toronto and the G.T.A are battling with more than just bad hair days Saturday, as Environment Canada has issued a wind warning for the area.

Fierce gusts of up to 100 km/h in some areas have knocked down power lines and down trees, making for a busy day for city crews.

The TTC was even impacted by the wild weather. A section of the Bloor line, from Kipling to Islington stations had to be temporarily shut down after debris was scattered along the tracks.

Saturday evening in the Toronto area, the gusts will die down to be about 60 km/h, but Environment Canada warns the winds can still pack a punch.

“The winds are strong enough to cause minor damage to property and some trees…Motorists should also be prepared for the very strong and gusty winds which may make driving quite difficult.”

CityNews viewers have been busy snapping photos of the damage the gusts have caused.
