Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm warning for Mississauga.
Severe thunderstorm warnings are issued when there is the possibility or expectation for storms to produce large hail, damaging winds, and/or torrential rainfall.
“Heavy downpours are likely to cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles,” says a report from Environment Canada.
