WEATHER STATEMENT

ENVIRONMENT CANADA

*************************
Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for:
  • Sault Ste. Marie - St. Joseph Island

Severe thunderstorm conditions possible - early morning to morning.

Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts and large hail.

Large hail can damage property and cause injury.

Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes.

Be prepared for severe weather.

Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches.

Stay indoors when a thunderstorm strikes.

There isn't a place outside that is safe during a thunderstorm. Stay away from all windows, skylights and doors.

In Canada, lightning kills up to 10 people every year.

Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors.

Emergency Management Ontario recommends that you take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required, so stay tuned to your local media or Weatheradio. Email reports of severe weather to storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet with the hashtag #ONStorm.
