Photos and Video Jul.23, 2013 - severe thunderstorms

Not a big weather day by any, means, however there is currently a cell near london that has caught my attention, its only 20,000 ft, not producing hail but it is rotating significantly on radar, and has maintained a slight hook shape since it made landfall. no watches or warnings yet nor will there likely be, but it's atleast noteworthy IMO.

Then again, I could be wrong :P

A line of t-storms is forming over michighan and covers the width of the severe watch. The storms look slightly turbulent with tops of up to 35,000ft.

The storm near millbrook could be putting downs some nice size hail, also has a nice hook to it and is showing rotation at the higher levels.

New Severe Thunderstorm warnings up for: Kaladar - Bannockburn - Bon Echo Park - Stirling - Tweed - Madoc

Quote:
A line of strong thunderstorms is tracking eastward across or toward the Stirling-Tweed and Mamora area. These storms could have isolated wind gusts reaching the severe criteria of 90 km/hr.

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

Strong wind gusts and hail can damage property and cause injuries. Local downpours can cause flash floods.

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. Stay on the lower floor of your home or building and if the storm is particularly severe go to the basement.

Avoid driving through water on roads. Even shallow fast moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle away.

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

For more information:
http://www.emergencymanagementontari...eprepared.html .

Environment Canada continues to monitor the situation closely. Stay tuned to your local media or Weatheradio for further updates. If you would like to report severe weather, you can send an email to [email address].

Updated or ended by 5:00 PM EDT.

Big storm just developed right on top of me. Skies went dark so I checked the radar. 'Couple tiny little cells forming over the lake, 25k tops.

Nice dark cloud base with lots of movement in the clouds, tendrils hanging down swirling around (I shot some video that I'll try and do a time lapse with).

Right now (30mins later) it's developed into a nice tstorm line, lots of reds showing on radar, and 35k cloud tops.

Just had some heavy rain, no wind. Thunder/lightning is moderate right now, but it looks like the storms are moving to the ESE.
