"Severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes."
If you looked out the window last night, you surely noticed the immense rain and lighting taking over our city. And it seems like it may not be over just yet, as the Government of Canada is warning of the possibility for serious thunderstorms in Montreal today.
With the city currently under severe thunderstorm watch, we may be in for an intensely rainy day this Monday.
The watch is specifically in effect for the Châteauguay - La Prairie area, the Laval area, the Longueuil - Varennes area, and the Montréal Island area.
On the government's official website, we're reminded that "severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes. Water-related activities may be unsafe due to violent and sudden gusts of wind over bodies of water. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year."
We're also told to go inside if ever we get caught in this nasty weather. "Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!"
