A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for Brockville, Gananoque, Mallorytown, Westport and Charleston Lake. Environment Canada says conditions are right for dangerous thunderstorms to develop. These storms may be capable of producing damaging wind gusts, large hail and heavy rain. The thunderstorms are expected to develop ahead of or along a cold front this afternoon or evening. Very strong wind gusts can damage buildings, down trees and blow large vehicles off the road. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors! Severe thunderstorm watches are issued when atmospheric conditions are favourable for the development of thunderstorms that could
produce one or more of the following: large hail, damaging winds, torrential rainfall.
