Parts of Ontario are under threat of tornadoes again, after intense storms touched down in Ontario last night.

Environment Canada put out a severe thunderstorm warning at 3:25 p.m. this afternoon for Renfrew, Pembroke and Barry's Bay, saying, "a tornado is also possible." Other risks for the area include dime-sized hail and 80 km/h wind gusts.

A severe thunderstorm warning was also placed at 4:05 p.m. for Belleville, Quinte West, Eastern Northumberland County with the threat of an isolated tornado and "80 km/h wind gusts and dime size hail."

Locations impacted by the storm include "Trent Hills, Hastings, Ferris Provincial Park, Woodland and Campbellford."

A third warning was placed at 4:09 p.m. for severe thunderstorms for Petawawa, Pembroke, Cobden, Renfrew, Arnprior and Calabogie.

The areas impacted include "Renfrew, McGrath, Esmonde, Balaclava, McDougall and Mayhew," and while "80 km/h wind gusts and dime size hail" are a risk, Environment Canada mentions a risk of possible tornadoes.

Environment Canada recommends that if threatening weather approaches, people "take cover immediately."
