Environment Canada has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Windsor-Essex:

At 1:30 am EDT, meteorologists are tracking a line of severe thunderstorms capable of producing hail, strong winds and locally heavy downpours.

Communities in the path include: Pelee Island

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.
