Strong winds over night have caused power outages in Ontario and Quebec.

About 3400 homes were without power in East York and Scarborough after wind toppled tree limbs onto power lines.

As of 8:00 Tuesday morning, about 500 customers were still without power in the Finch and Brimley area.

Quebec was hit hardest by the storm, as 272,000 customers were left in the dark.

Strong winds were also blamed for about 36,000 outages from the Sudbury area through Tweed in eastern Ontario.

Hydro One is blaming trees falling on power lines for the bulk of the outages.
