St. Thomas – Aylmer – Eastern Elgin County

Issued at 15:05 Sunday 14 June 2015

Thunderstorms associated with a frontal boundary are affecting southwestern Ontario this afternoon. The main threat with these thunderstorms are torrential downpours, but damaging winds are also a possibility. The threat should diminish this evening. 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. Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please monitor local media or Weatheradio. To report severe weather, send an email to storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm. For more information: http://www.ontario.ca/beprepared.
