The storm has passed.
Environment Canada is tracking a severe thunderstorm capable of producing very strong winds gusts, nickel to ping pong size ball size hail, and heavy rain.
A severe thunderstorm warning has been put into effect for the Kenora, Grassy Narrows, Whitedog, Sioux Narrows, Nestor Falls, and Morson areas.
Heavy downpours are likely to cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. 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.
Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop. 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.
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.
