Tornado warning muskoka 3:45

Code:
3:45 PM EDT Tuesday 17 June 2014
Tornado warning in effect for:

    Bracebridge - Gravenhurst
    Port Carling - Port Severn

Updated or ended by 4:24 p.m. EDT.

At 3:45 p.m. EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm that is possibly producing a tornado.

A few severe thunderstorms possibly producing Tornadoes are moving acrross the regions. These storms are tracking from west to east at 60 kilometres per hour. Damaging wind and wind gusts to 100 km/h are also likely with these storms.

This is a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. If you hear a roaring sound or see a funnel cloud, swirling debris near the ground, flying debris, or any threatening weather approaching, take shelter immediately.

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.

In Canada, lightning kills up to 10 people every year.
Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors.

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

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required, so stay tuned to your local media or Weatheradio. Email reports of severe weather to storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet with the hashtag #ONStorm.
