Saturday night's intense windstorm left 380,000 Hydro Quebec customers without power on Sunday morning.

From flying garbage cans, Christmas decorations, and even a tipped over tractor trailer on Highway 13, the winds caused plenty of damage all across southern Quebec.

The Weather Network reported winds of 106km/h at the Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport late Sunday evening, leaving many Quebecers without electricity on Sunday… With some still without power on Monday morning.

According to CTV News, “The Laurentians, Lanaudière and Outaouais regions followed with 44,942, 26,487 and 28,993 customers affected respectively. In Montreal, there were 12,706 customers and in Laval, 14,133.”
