Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm warning for Morden, Winkler, and the R.M. of Stanley.
Meteorologists are tracking an area of severe thunderstorms from Miami to Pilot Mound moving east-southeast at 60 km/h. These storms are capable of producing large hail, damaging wind gusts of 100 km/h and heavy downpours, said Environment Canada.
Environment Canada advises residents to "Take cover if threatening weather approaches. Strong wind gusts and hail can damage property and cause injuries. Local downpours can cause flash floods. Avoid driving through water on roads. Even shallow fast-moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle away. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes."
To report severe weather, you can call 1-800-239-0484 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
