There was an eerie orange glow in sky during a flash downpour across Ottawa Thursday night.
On social media, the storm brought a deluge of photos as people captured dark clouds, flashing lightning and the golden sky that followed.
Take a look:
Dark skies in the east.
And to the west.
Time to batten down the hatches.
The clouds had an apocalyptic feel.
Some people made the best of a windy situation.
The night had a golden finish.
