Environment Canada issued a tornado watch for southern Ontario, just one day after the Toronto Earthquake.
A line of thunderstorms is expected to develop over Michigan this afternoon then track rapidly eastward into Southern Ontario late this afternoon and this evening. The threat for storms will begin in areas near Lake Huron between 4:00 PM and 5:00 PM then move eastward to reach a line from Eastern Lake Erie through the Golden Horseshoe to the upper Ottawa Valley by 8:00 PM.
Some of these storms will have the potential to be severe with large hail, damaging winds, and torrential downpours. There will also be the potential for isolated tornadoes.
This is an alert to the potential development of severe thunderstorms capable of producing tornadoes. Monitor weather conditions and listen for updated bulletins.
We all remember the last tornado that hit Vaughan. Prepare yourself and it won’t be unexpected.
Also a good time to check your home insurance, does it cover tornado damages.
