At 2:10 p.m. EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm capable of producing very strong wind gusts, up to nickel size hail and heavy rain.

This line of severe thunderstorms is located from Mount Elgin to 7 kilometres northwest of Port Dalhousie, moving southeast at 70 km/h.

Simcoe, St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, Fort Erie, Norwich, Delhi, Caledonia, Cayuga, Dunnville, Smithville, Lincoln, Port Colborne, Welland, Scotland, Waterford, Port Dover, Ohsweken, Jarvis, Hagersville and Selkirk Provincial Park.
Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes.
