Thunderstorms brought significant hail to most of Edmonton Friday night as much of the surrounding region was under a severe thunderstorm warning or watch. 

A tornado watch for the Edmonton area was lifted just before 9 p.m. Friday. 

Golf-ball sized hail was reported in some parts of the region and some Edmontonians lost electricity due to multiple outages in the city.
