“Conditions are favorable for the development of severe thunderstorms that can produce tornadoes this afternoon. Strong winds, heavy hail and heavy rain are also possible,” says a statement from Environment Canada.

To stay safe during a hurricane, the agency recommends heading indoors as low as possible in the room, away from walls and windows facing the outdoors, such as in a basement or closet.

Choose a sturdy building, leaving behind mobile homes, trailers and cars.
As a last resort, it is advised to lie low and protect your head from any flying debris.

The agency also advises people to beware of lightning strikes.
