Saturday, July 6, 2013, 8:26 PM - A severe line of thunderstorms passing through eastern Saskatchewan and western Manitoba prompted tornado warnings to be issued on Saturday.

Environment Canada issued tornado watches and warnings for communities along the Saskatchewan and Manitoba border Saturday afternoon.

"A line of severe thunderstorms were training along the Saskatchwan-Manitoba border and may have produced tornadoes," explained Weather Network meteorologist Monica Vaswani.

One storm spotter reported a possible tornado Saturday afternoon north of Wroxton. No touch downs have been confirmed at this time.

All tornado warnings have dropped. However the threat of severe weather continues and severe thunderstorm warnings are still in effect for both provinces.

Meteorologists say these severe thunderstorms will also have the potential to produce very large hail, flooding rain, "deadly lightning" and powerful winds.
