Severe thunderstorms possible in Montreal Thursday afternoon
Montrealers should expect to experience the rest of the day in rain and thunderstorms, as Environment Canada has issued, around 2 p.m. Thursday, a severe thunderstorm watch alert for a large part of southern Quebec, including the metropolis.
When such a warning is issued, it means that conditions are favorable for the formation of thunderstorms that can generate strong winds, heavy rains and even large hail.
“Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Strong gusts can throw loose objects, damage flimsy buildings, tear branches from trees and overturn large vehicles. Remember that severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Torrential rains can cause flash floods and water accumulation on the roads,” said Environment Canada meteorologists in their warning.
Plusieurs régions du sud de la province ont été mis en veille d'orage violents.
