Police in downtown Toronto had to close at least two portions of road due to high winds, on Sunday.
Winds were blowing building material onto the highway on YOnge Street between Asquith and Yorkville avenues, according to Toronto police.
As of 12 p.m. Sunday, the area is blocked to automobiles.
Due to heavy winds, firefighters said scaffolding at Portland and Adelaide streets in the south was at risk of collapsing.
Later, police said debris on the roadways was cleared and Portland and Adelaide reopened to traffic.
Elsewhere in the GTA, high winds have prompted police to close the QEW in both directions at the Burlington Skyway.
Environment Canada said Toronto could see wind gusts of up to 100 kilometres per hour for much of Sunday.
Toronto police ask residents who spot trees downed due to wind to call 311 if there are no injuries.
