Severe Thunderstorm WarningIssued at 17:16 Thursday 28 July 2016
At 5:16 p.m. EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm capable of producing very strong wind gusts, pea to dime size hail and heavy rain.
A nearly stationary thunderstorm between Stratford and St. Marys continues to produce torrential downpours and frequent lightning. Local rainfall amounts of 50 to 100 mm are quite possible from this thunderstorm.
Heavy downpours are likely to cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Fast-moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle away. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes.
