Ottawa Hydro says a thunderstorm that made its way through the city Wednesday afternoon knocked power out for over 9,000 people across Ottawa.

According to tweets from Hydro Ottawa, the bulk of the outages occurred in Orléans with some also occurring in the Lincoln Heights and Bay Ward areas. According to Ottawa Hydro, the estimated time that power will be restored is 10:30 p.m.

(...)Environment Canada released a thunderstorm warning earlier this morning saying that conditions were appropriate for the formation of a heavy storm as a cold front pushes out the humidity in the region.
