Tornado watch in effect for Town of Georgina

A tornado watch is in effect for the Town of Georgina and northern York Region. Environment Canada issued the watch which states conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms which may produce tornadoes. Strong winds, large hail and heavy rain are also possible.

In the event of a tornado, or if a tornado warning is issued for your area, it is recommended you take the following actions

  • Go indoors to a room on the lowest floor, away from outside walls and windows, such as a basement, bathroom, stairwell or interior closet. 
  • Leave mobile homes, vehicles, tents, trailers and other temporary or free-standing shelter, and move to a strong building if you can. 
  • As a last resort, lie in a low spot and protect your head from flying debris. 
  • Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors.
