Many thousands of Quinte area residents lost power Wednesday, following extremely heavy winds.
In some areas, it got to 120 km/h, shutting off the lights for homes and businesses.
As of 4:45 a.m., many thousands are still in the dark, with dozens of different outages being reported.
A man was hit by a falling tree branch at Bridge Street and Foster Avenue Wednesday afternoon, while a downed tree also caused a road closure on Bridge Street, between Bleecker and Herchimer.
Meanwhile the wind was especially hard on the south shores of Prince Edward County.
News Director John Spitters visited Wellington Beach.
There were also reports of a traffic hazard on Wallbridge-Loyalist Road at Moira Street, where canoes blew off a vehicle and blocked the roadway.
