The woman, identified as Gail Greene, was in her yard in Ferguson Falls at the time.

The Lanark County detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police got a call about the incident around 3 p.m. Greene had been transported to hospital by paramedics, where she succumbed to her injuries.

Police said her death was not suspicious and an investigation is ongoing.

The OPP did not connect Greene’s death to the brutal storm that battered Ottawa and surrounding areas Saturday, resulting in damage to trees and power lines and multiple deaths.

On Sunday, the Ottawa Police Service said it was investigating the death of a 59-year-old man at a golf course in the west end after a tree fell on him Saturday.

Two people were critically injured at separate golf courses Saturday, police said, as was one person in a storm-related motor vehicle accident, Pierre Poirier, chief of the Ottawa Paramedic Service, said during an emergency media conference that evening.

Emergency crews in Gatineau also responded Saturday to a boat that capsized on the Ottawa River during the storm, which was carrying two people, one of whom died in the incident.

The OPP also responded to a call about a fallen tree in the Renfrew-Greater Madawaska area that resulted in the death of a 44-year-old man Saturday. The tree came down on a cottage property on Calabogie Road. The man was taken to hospital by paramedics, where he was pronounced dead.
