Around 40,000 homes across the region suffered power cuts during the dramatic storms that hit the region.
Northern Powergrid engineers worked late into the night to restore power, as the bad weather continued in some areas.
There were a number of fires caused by lightning strikes. The roof of a house in Ferryhill was completely destroyed. Durham Fire and Rescue say there was no-one in the property at the time.
The HOT weather has set in with temperatures climbing to the highest level for a long time.
Durham and York have seen the mercury climb over 30C!

Isolated heavy, and possibly severe thunderstorms are expected to develop late Wednesday afternoon across parts of Northern England and Southern Scotland.
Some torrential downpours are possible leading to localised surface water flooding, with hail and frequent lightning also possible hazards.
