CN Tower closed after reports of chunks of ice falling, Rogers Centre roof leaking

The Jays' account then tried to follow suit Monday thanks to the Rogers Centre's roof, but then had to delete that tweet after their own game came into question thanks to falling snow and ice from that roof and from the neighbo (u) ring CN Tower.

The CN Tower has been closed due to the extreme weather following reports of chunks of ice falling off the tower, endangering buildings and passengers below.

"Fortunately there's been no injuries reported", said Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook.

Snow is on the field after falling ice from the CN Tower smashed a hole in the Rogers Centre, home of the Toronto Blue Jays, over right field Monday afternoon.

A spring snowstorm brought freezing rain and high winds into the Toronto area over the weekend, disrupting travel in the Canadian city.

Provincial police also said Highway 400 south of Barrie, Ont., remained closed in both directions after a collision involving two trucks took out the highway divider.

The poor conditions also prompted bus and school cancellations in parts of the province Monday.

In Ottawa, which was under a freezing rain warning, all entrances to the Centre Block on Parliament Hill were closed because of falling ice.

Hydro-Quebec reported early Monday that more than 33,000 of its clients were without electricity, the majority in the hard-hit Outaouais region in western Quebec and the Monteregie region southeast of Montreal.

Some universities and colleges cancelled classes and exams due to the weather, and with heavy rain continuing overnight there were concerns about possible localized flooding.
