Tornado warning issued for central Ontario
July 19, 2013
Environment Canada has issued a tornado warning for the parts of central Ontario, and a tornado watch is hovering over an area stretching from the Bruce Peninsula to Ottawa.
The agency warned residents of North Bay, Powassan, Mattawa and West-Nipissing-French River of a “dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation” and urged them to take cover immediately.
Southern Ontario, including the GTA, are still under a severe thunderstorm watch as a heat wave continues to punish the area with highs of 34 C, pushed up to 45 C with the humidex.
