Tornado Watch Still Continues for the Above Regions!
At 4:12 p.m. EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a cluster of severe thunderstorms capable of producing very strong wind gusts.
One strong thunderstorm is near Maberly, and another is just south of Arden. These storms are moving northeastward at around 70 km/h. Communities in the path may include: Parham, Long Lake, Westport, Wemyss, Perth.
Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Go indoors and move away from windows and skylights. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!
Severe thunderstorm warnings are issued when imminent or occurring thunderstorms are likely to produce or are producing one or more of the following: large hail, damaging winds, torrential rainfall.
