Environment Canada is reporting that weather conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts and large hail this afternoon and early evening.
The Weather Watch is in effect for:
- City of Thunder Bay
- Atikokan – Shebandowan – Quetico Park
- Upsala – Raith
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. Be prepared for severe weather. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. 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.
