The wind warnings have been cancelled but not before they whipped up garbage cans and blew down power lines in southern Ontario, including the GTA.
Across Ontario, Hydro One crews are working to restore power to 59,000 customers across the region.

Wind gusts of around 100 km/h brought down tree branches in several locations including damaging a car near Markham Road and Eglinton Avenue East. The intersection of Finch and Driftwood avenues was also blocked because of downed wires.

In downtown Toronto, construction material collapsed at King and John Streets, scattering debris on the roadway and sidewalk. And a few blocks east of Yonge and Bloor streets a swing stage got loose, breaking glass on a balcony.
While the high winds kept cleanup crews busy, there were no reports of any injuries.
Although the wind warnings have since ended for the GTA, 680 NEWS meteorologist Jill Taylor said it will still be breezy on Wednesday with 40-50 km/h winds and higher gusts. She said the wind will diminish in the afternoon.
