Warnings



8:03 PM EDT Thursday 21 July 2016

[b]Severe thunderstorm warning in effect for:



Little Abitibi - Kesagami Lake

Timmins - Cochrane - Iroquois Falls[/b]




At 8:03 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.



A line of thunderstorms extending from Fort Albany to near Nagagami will move southeast across the Kapuskasing area between 8.00 PM and 9.00 PM and may reach the Timmins and Cochrane areas between 9.00 PM and 10.00 PM.



Wind gusts of 100 km/h, 2 to 5 cm hail and torrential downpours giving 25 to 50 mm in under an hour are all possible. Many of these thunderstorms also contain intense lightning.



At this point, it appears the thunderstorms will pass by the town of Chapleau to the northeast but may affect the Chapleau Crown Game Reserve area to the north of the town.



Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Intense lightning is likely with any thunderstorm that develops. Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes.



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



Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm.

5:35 PM EDT Thursday 21 July 2016

Heat Warning in effect for:



Little Abitibi - Kesagami Lake

Timmins - Cochrane - Iroquois Falls



Humidex values reaching near 40 are expected.



A sizzling mid summer airmass has moved into the area. Temperatures reached the 29 to 31 degree range again today.



With early morning low temperatures in the upper teens to low twenties, little relief is expected from the heat and humidity however there is the chance of brief showers or thunderstorms this evening.



This heat event is expected to come to an end on Friday.



Heat illnesses are preventable.



While heat can put everyone at risk from heat illnesses, health risks are greatest for

- older adults;

- infants and young children;

- people with chronic illnesses such as breathing difficulties, heart conditions or psychiatric illnesses;

- people who work in the heat;

- people who exercise in the heat;

- homeless people; and

- people without access to air conditioning.



Watch for symptoms of heat illness, which include

- dizziness or fainting, nausea or vomiting

- headache

- rapid breathing and heartbeat

- extreme thirst and

- decreased urination with unusually dark yellow urine.

If you experience any of these symptoms during a heat event, immediately move to a cool place and drink liquids. Water is best.



Frequently visit neighbours, friends and older family members, especially those who are chronically ill, to make sure that they are cool and hydrated.



Heat warnings are issued when very high temperature or humidity conditions are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.



Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm.

Warnings



8:11 PM EDT Thursday 25 August 2016

[b]Tornado warning in effect for:



Timmins - Cochrane - Iroquois Falls[/b]




At 8:11 p.m. EDT, 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.



Doppler radar indicates a potential tornado northeast of Cochrane near highway 652. This storm is moving to the east at 50 km/h.



This is a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. If you hear a roaring sound or see a funnel cloud, swirling debris near the ground, flying debris, or any threatening weather approaching, take shelter immediately.



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 warnings are issued when imminent or occurring thunderstorms are likely to produce or are producing tornadoes.



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



Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm.

[b]Freezing rain warning in effect for:



Timmins - Cochrane - Iroquois Falls[/b]




Freezing rain will continue over the regions until early afternoon, and then taper off. 5 to 10 millimetres of ice accretion is possible during this event. The precipitation may be mixed at times with snow or ice pellets.



Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Road closures are possible. Ice build-up may cause tree branches to break. Beware of branches or electrical wires that could break under the weight of ice. Utility outages may occur. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight. For information on emergency plans and kits go to http://www.getprepared.gc.ca/
