Severe thunderstorms roll through southern Manitoba

Lisa Lemoine of Niverville, Manitoba captured this lightning strike on video as thunderstorms rolled through Manitoba Monday.

A line of thunderstorms rolled through southern Manitoba Monday afternoon, bringing strong winds and lots of lightning.

Some areas saw hail as well, especially south of Winnipeg. However, the capital of Manitoba was sideswiped by the storms, only experiencing rain and some winds. There were no immediate reports of damage in the city.

Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Sara Hoffman told Global News the weather conditions were right for severe storms throughout the region.

“Our main concern with those thunderstorms is large hail, strong winds and localized heavy rainfall amounts,” she said.

“We cannot rule out the possibility of a possible tornado, too, for today.”

Hoffman said the thunderstorms will likely go into the evening and showers are expected to fill in after the storms move through the area.
