Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm warning for North Bay, Powassan and Mattawa.  

See the details here: 

At 6:42 p.m. EDT, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a line of severe thunderstorms capable of producing very strong wind gusts, up to nickel size hail and heavy rain.

This line of severe thunderstorms is located from Fossmill to 10 kilometres northwest of Marion Lake, moving north at 55 km/h.

Locations impacted include:
Amable du Fond Provincial Park, North Tea Lake, Manitou Lake, Western Algonquin Park, Eau Claire, Kiosk, Kioshkokwi Lake, Misty Lake, Burntroot Lake, Daventry, Redpine Lake and Hurdman Lake.

Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles.

Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!

The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management recommends that you take cover immediately if threatening weather approaches.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
