Saturday, May 25th 2019, 9:48 pm - A cold front triggered a line of severe thunderstorms in Ontario Saturday afternoon and evening
Severe thunderstorms fired up across southern, northeastern and eastern Ontario Saturday afternoon and evening. Residents took to social media to post photos and videos of the active weather.
The storms were sparked as a cold front trekked across southern, northeastern and eastern areas of the province, quickly prompting reports of downpours, flooding, lightning, hail and strong winds (including a microburst).
It even resulted in a brief tornado warning for Little Abitibi-Kesagami Lake in northeastern Ontario Saturday evening. Environment Canada dropped it at 7:22 p.m.
The storms have since moved out and sunshine will return to Ontario on Sunday. The latest on Ontario's forecast can be found here.
