A path of severe weather whiiped through Montreal, Que., and southern Quebec Thursday afternoon after leaving the Ottawa and Cornwall (video shown above) regions in its wake just hours before.
Various warnings remain in place for the Eastern Township. Consult the ALERTS page for complete listings.
The rain began around 12:30 p.m. ET and will continue to be heavy well past 2 p.m. ET, a quick look at the precipitation start and stop graph shows the intensity of the approaching rains.
Weather spotters in Louisville reported quarter-size hail and the Active Weather section of the viewer-submitted photo gallery on theweathernetwork.com quickly filled up with photos of the storm. (Residents are reminded to stay indoors if severe weather approaches).
The risk for severe weather will continue through the evening, as the system tracks northeastward.
