(GREENSTONE, ON) – Environment Canada has issued a tornado watch for several areas near Greenstone. Below are the details.
Tornado watch in effect for:
- Geraldton – Longlac – Caramat
- Manitouwadge – Hornepayne
- Nakina – Aroland – Pagwa
Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms which may produce tornadoes.
Scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop over the regions later this afternoon. Some of these storms will become very well organized and could produce tornadoes late this afternoon or this evening.
The threat for tornadoes will end late this evening.
In the event of a tornado, or if a tornado warning is issued for your area, it is recommended you take the following actions: Go indoors to a room on the lowest floor, away from outside walls and windows, such as a basement, bathroom, stairwell or interior closet. Leave mobile homes, vehicles, tents, trailers and other temporary or free-standing shelter, and move to a strong building if you can. As a last resort, lie in a low spot and protect your head from flying debris. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!
The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management recommends that you take cover immediately if threatening weather approaches.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by TRCCTB.COM.
