PHOTOS: Storms prompt flash floods in southern Manitoba
Friday, September 4, 2015, 4:52 PM - Severe thunderstorms moved through southern Manitoba Friday afternoon, triggering flash floods in the Winnipeg area.
The storm will continue to track east, hitting northwestern Ontario early Saturday morning.
Meteorologists are warning residents to avoid fast-moving water and prepare for strong wind gusts and large hail, both of which are possible during the storm.
While there are no tornado watches or warnings in place, every severe storm is capable of producing a tornado.
"Be prepared for severe weather," Environment Canada says in a statement.
"Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Stay indoors when a thunderstorm strikes. There isn't a place outside that is safe during a thunderstorm."
