Meanwhile, the Hudson Bay-Porcupine Plaine area, just north of the tornado watch zone, is under a severe thunderstorm watch.

If you see a tornado, or are in an area with a tornado warning, go indoors to the lowest floor of a structure and stay away from outside walls and windows.

Environment Canada also advises avoiding free-standing shelters like a mobile home or tent. As a last resort, they advise lying in a low spot and protecting your head from flying debris.
