Timelapse of severe storm hitting Toronto

Watch above: A timelapse of Tuesday’s storm rolling through Toronto. 

TORONTO – A timelapse video created from the Global News camera on the Toronto harbour captured Tuesday’s storm rolling through the city and blanketing it in rain.

The storm hit Toronto at approximately 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and over the course of an hour drenched the city and flooded some roads.

The timelapse also captured a plane landing at Billy Bishop Airport just before the storm’s worst hit on the city.

The storm soaked Toronto but was much worse for residentsnorth of the city, where a tornado touched down in Angus, Ontario. It damaged hundreds of houses and left at least 100 people homeless as crews worked to clean up the debris.
