just when one warning was dropped...
Code:
4:37 PM EDT Tuesday 17 June 2014
 Severe thunderstorm warning in effect for: 
•Barrie - Collingwood - Hillsdale
 •Orillia - Lagoon City - Washago
 
Updated or ended by 6:36 p.m. EDT.

At 4:37 p.m. EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a line of severe thunderstorms capable of producing very strong wind gusts, dime to ping pong ball size hail and heavy rain. At 4:37 p.m. EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a cluster of severe thunderstorms capable of producing very strong wind gusts, dime to ping pong ball size hail and heavy rain.

These thunderstorms are affecting areas from Bracebridge in the north through Orillia and southwestward to Orangeville and are moving eastward at about 80 km/h. The atmospheric environment is also favourable for tornado development.

Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Go indoors and move away from windows and skylights. Avoid areas of the building that could be affected by falling debris such as tree limbs. 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.
