-- Original Story --

Environment Canada has upgraded its Severe Thunderstorm Watch to a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for the Kenora area, as meteorologists say we could see 90 km/h winds, nickel-size hail and heavy downpours.

They say a line of strong thunderstorms developed over parts of North Dakota and Minnesota and they made their way into parts of northwestern Ontario shortly after 10 a.m. this morning.

The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management recommends that you take cover immediately if threatening weather approaches.
