Montreal/IBNS: Four people have died and nearly 900,000 homes are without power after severe storms battered the eastern Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec, media reports said Saturday.

Ontario Police on Twitter informed that three people died and several more were injured due to a strong summer thunderstorm.

According to reports, one man was killed when a tree fell on the trailer he was staying in.

A woman in her seventies was also crushed by a tree while walking in the storm.

In Ottawa, another person was killed by the storm, but local police declined to give further details.

The fourth victim was a woman in her fifties who drowned when her boat capsized in the Ottawa River.

Nearly 900,000 homes in the two provinces were without power Saturday night, reports said.
