A brief but fierce thunderstorm toppled trees and power lines in the Hamilton area Saturday afternoon, dropping a huge branch on a Dundas home, and leaving pockets of the city without power.

Residents reported hail and high winds during the storm, which swept eastward over the region.

Emergency crews responded to power lines on roadways and sidewalks in Dundas, where branches littered the waterlogged streets and one unlucky house on Hillside Street South had a giant tree fall through the roof.

The storm knocked out power for thousands of residents, with Alectra and Hydro One reporting outages in the Hamilton area.

Roughly 3,500 Hydro One and Alectra customers were still without power by 4:30 p.m.,

GO Transit suspended service into West Harbour station after trees fell on the tracks. Service was expected to be restored in time for the 4:15 p.m. train from Union Station in Toronto.

Environment Canada had issued a thunderstorm warning earlier in the day.
