TORONTO – Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for Chatham, Kent, Rondeau Park, Windsor, Leamington and Essex County in Ontario.
Some storms rolled through the region early Wednesday morning, but more are expected in the early afternoon into the early evening.
The watch comes just a day after a tornado ripped the roofs off several homes in Angus, Ont., southwest of Barrie. Damage was also reported in other areas of the province as high winds knocked down hydro poles and trees.
There is a chance that severe thunderstorms could produce torrential rain and strong wind gusts.
A watch is issued when conditions are favourable for severe weather. A warning is when hazardous weather is imminent or occurring.
