Tornado Warning in Effect in Southern Ontario Including Mississauga
Environment Canada has issued a tornado warning for several areas in southern Ontario, including Mississauga.
Meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm that may possibly produce a tornado. Damaging winds, large hail and locally intense rainfall are also possible.
EC offers several safety tips for such a potentially dangerous situation. Take cover immediately if threatening weather approaches. If you hear a roaring sound or see a funnel cloud, swirling debris near the ground, flying debris, or any threatening weather approaching, take shelter immediately.
Go indoors to a room on the lowest floor, away from outside walls and windows, such as a basement, bathroom, stairwell or interior closet. Leave mobile homes, vehicles, tents, trailers and other temporary or free-standing shelter, and move to a strong building if you can. As a last resort, lie in a low spot and protect your head from flying debris.
