UPDATE-ENDED-Severe Thunderstorm Warning Issued For Haliburton And Minden Areas

UPDATE:Warning ended

KAWARTHA LAKES-Environment Canada has upgraded a watch to a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Haliburton and Minden areas.

At 12:58 p.m. EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm capable of producing very strong wind gusts, up to nickel size hail and heavy rain.

This severe thunderstorm is located 7 kilometres west of Brady Lake, moving east at 65 km/h with 90 km/h wind gusts and nickel size hail.

Locations impacted include:
Haliburton, Brady Lake, Kushog Lake, Halls Lake, Boshkung Lake, Little Boshkung Lake, Mountain Lake, Twelve Mile Lake, Carnarvon, Beech Lake, Horseshoe Lake, Green Lake, Soyers Lake, Kashagawigamog Lake, Pine Lake, Grass Lake, Head Lake, Eagle Lake, Art Lake and Outlet Bay.

Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!

The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management recommends that you take cover immediately if threatening weather approaches.
