Toronto was treated to a spectacular light show Wednesday night.
While there was no tornado, severe thunderstorms rolling through southern Ontario spawned lightning strikes that lit up the dark sky.
The lightning storm knocked out power for more than 20,000 homes and businesses in the province and lightning sparked a fire causing $100,000 in damages at a townhouse in the city's east end, near Sheppard Ave. and Meadowvale Rd.
Take a look at a few of the best shots sent in from readers below. We've also included a couple of videos that captured the intensity of last night's electric storm.
