Freezing Rain Hits Greater Toronto Area in Canada

Freezing rain and snow hit the greater Toronto area in Canada on Saturday, April 14, resulting in harsh driving conditions and power outages.

According to The Canadian Press, slippery conditions lead to multiple collisions on highways across southern Ontario, particularly those leading into Toronto. Meteorologist Peter Kimbell told The Press that southwestern Ontario communities near Lake Erie could receive up to 40 millimeters (1.6 inches) of freezing rain.

CBC reported that as of Saturday night, over 550 crashes were reported around the Greater Toronto Area.
