Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm that is possibly producing a tornado. Damaging winds, large hail and locally intense rainfall are also possible.

A severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado is located 20 west of Fulda, moving east at 35 km/h.

Hazard: Golfball size hail and 100 km/h wind gusts.

Tornado Warning in effect for:

R.M. of Humboldt including Humboldt Carmel and Fulda

R.M. of St Peter including Muenster and Lake Lenore

This is a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches.

Environment Canada has issued a tornado watch the Humboldt area. Extra care and attention should be exercised.

Damaging winds, large hail and locally intense rainfall are also possible. Take cover immediately if threatening weather approaches.

In the event of a tornado, or if a tornado warning is issued for your area, it is recommended you take the following actions: 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. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors! Tornado watches are issued when atmospheric conditions are favourable for the development of thunderstorms that could produce tornadoes.
