City of Edmonton - St. Albert - Sherwood Park

Severe thunderstorm warning for
City of Edmonton - St. Albert - Sherwood Park issued

At 9:45 PM MDT meteorologists are tracking a line of severe thunderstorms extending from Tomahawk to 10 km west of Leduc. These thunderstorms are moving to the northeast at 20 KM/H and have the potential to produce large hail, strong wind gusts and heavy rainfall.

Take cover, if threatening weather approaches.

Strong wind gusts and hail can damage property and cause injuries. Local downpours can cause flash floods.

Avoid driving through water on roads. Even shallow fast moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle away.

In Canada, lightning kills up to 10 people every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors.

Environment Canada continues to monitor the situation closely. Please continue to monitor your local media or Weatheradio for further updates. If you would like to report severe weather, you can call 1-800-239-0484 or send an email to storm@ec.gc.ca.
