Default Bon Echo tornado warning may 18

Just noticed this a few minutes ago

Code:
Warnings

5:28 PM EDT Monday 18 May 2015
Tornado warning in effect for:

    Bancroft - Hastings Highlands - Denbigh
    Kaladar - Bannockburn - Bon Echo Park

Updated or ended by 6:58 p.m. EDT.

At 5:28 p.m. EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm that is possibly producing a tornado. Damaging winds, large hail and locally intense rainfall are also possible.

Two severe thunderstorms capable of producing tornadoes across moving eastward. The storms are currently 50 km north of Madoc and over Lanark County.

This is a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation. 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.

Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!

The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management recommends that you take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please monitor local media or Weatheradio. To report severe weather, send an email to storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm.
