8/12/2017 1:26:16 PM
Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for:
Brockville - Prescott
Gananoque - Mallorytown
Merrickville-Wolford - Kemptville
Westport - Charleston Lake
Conditions are expected to be favourable for severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening as a cold front moves through.
Damaging winds and large hail are the main threats.
Torrential downpours may also suddenly reduce visibility resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Intense lightning is likely with any thunderstorm that develops. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads.
The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management recommends that you take cover immediately if threatening weather approaches.
