TORONTO – Residents in the east end of Toronto are cleaning up after a summer storm swept through the area, bringing down trees and power lines.

The damage was the result of one of two storms that crossed southern and eastern Ontario Friday afternoon.

The first round missed Toronto, but the second swept across the GTA bringing with it high winds, heavy rains and frequent lightning.

Parts of York Region and Durham were under tornado warnings.
