Tornado warning for
Niagara Falls - Welland - Southern Niagara Region upgraded from Severe thunderstorm warning

At 18:40 EDT, radar shows a thunderstorm that may be producing a tornado near Stoney Creek and a second west of Hamiltoni. The storms is moving eastward at 60 km/h.

This is a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation.

Emergency Management Ontario recommends that you take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches.

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.

Tornadoes are likely wrapped in rain and may not be visible. Do not wait to see a funnel cloud.
