Ottawa has been under many thunderstorm warnings lately, but we had a lot of hail during the storm on Saturday. 

People ran for their cameras as pea-sized chunks of ice fell from the skies. 

Elsewhere, Ottawa fire inspector Marc Messier tweeted two homes were struck by lightning in the Glebe and Stittsville, but neither started a fire.

The storms knocked out power for hundreds of people in and around Ottawa and delayed flights at the Ottawa International Airport.
