Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for Burlington, Oakville, Halton Hills and Milton

 

A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for Burlington, Oakville, Halton Hills and Milton.

Environment Canada says conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and heavy rain.

A few thunderstorms may hit severe thunderstorm warning criteria this afternoon or early this evening. The main threats are heavy downpours and wind gusts to 90 kilometres per hour.

Be prepared for severe weather. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors,” Environment Canada says.
