CORNWALL, Ontario – Environment Canada issued a Thunderstorm Watch for Cornwall and the surrounding area on Wednesday, June 26, 2019.
“Thunderstorms are forecast to develop this afternoon and persist into this evening. The main threats are wind gusts up to 100 km/h and 2 cm hail. There is also the threat of an isolated tornado,” the Environment Canada Weather Watch reads. “Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles.
