A New Tornado Threat Is In Ontario's Forecast Today
Several tornado warnings were sent out last night in southwestern Ontario.
It's not over yet. In the wake of last week's devastating tornados across central Canada, more severe weather is firing up, according to The Weather Network.
Tornado-warned storms hit parts of southern Ont last night with a severe threat continuing today. Regardless of severe storms developing, widespread gusty winds will jeopardize vulnerable structures from last week's tornado outbreak.

Southwestern Ontario saw severe thunderstorms last night which triggered tornado warnings for Chatham-Kent, Rondeau Park, Sarnia, Petrolia and Western Lambton County regions just before 8:30 p.m.
The warnings soon expanded to Windsor, Leamington and Essex County. While the warnings were dropped by 9:25 p.m., the area was still hit by heavy flooding rains.
An active Tuesday night across ON, also tracking thunderstorms across the north. Heavy rain and strong wind gusts the greatest threat. The area will see strong storms through the pre-dawn Wednesday. Storm threat diminishes through the morning. #ONSTORM @weathernetwork pic.twitter.com/DHweX0UkjH— Nadine Powell (@nadinehp4) September 26, 2018
