UPDATE: Tornado warning in eastern Ontario has ended
Tuesday, July 1, 2014, 4:45 PM -
UPDATE: Environment Canada issued a tornado warning in eastern Ontario, for the Ottawa North - Kanata - Orleans and Renfrew - Arnprior area, Tuesday afternoon. Those warnings have now dropped, but the threat for non-severe isolated thunderstorms continues for parts of Quebec through the evening.
People in that area are urged to take cover at once:
- Go indoors to a room on the lowest floor, away from outside walls and windows, such as a basement, bathroom, stairwell or interior closet.
- Leave mobile homes, vehicles, tents, trailers and other temporary or free-standing shelter, and move to a strong building if you can.
- As a last resort, lie in a low spot and protect your head from flying debris.
It's part of a larger series of storms that is moving into Eastern Ontario, which have sparked numerous severe thunderstorm watches and a handful of warnings.
