At 12:14 p.m. CST, Environment Canada released a statement saying that meteorologists are tracking a line of severe thunderstorms capable of producing strong wind gusts, up to nickel size hail, and heavy rain.

These thunderstorms are near Torquay and Boundary Dam and are moving slowly northwards.

Environment Canada reminds people that heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads and severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes.

People should also take cover immediately if threatening weather approaches.

Severe thunderstorm warnings are issued when imminent or occurring thunderstorms are likely to produce or are producing one or more of the following: large hail, damaging winds, torrential rainfall.

They ask people continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. Those who want to report severe weather can do so by sending an email to or tweeting reports using #SKStorm.
