Thunderstorms have developed from near Aylmer to Caledonia to Niagara Falls this afternoon. These thunderstorms are moving very slowly to the east. Rainfall amounts of 50 mm or more in one hour or less are expected.
Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance. 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.
