Warnings


4:13 PM CST Friday 12 July 2019 Tornado warning in effect for:

  • R.M. of Old Post including Wood Mountain and Killdeer

  • R.M. of Poplar Valley including Rockglen and Fife Lake

At 4:13 p.m. CST, Environment Canada meteorologists are tracking a severe thunderstorm that is possibly producing a tornado. Damaging winds, large hail and locally intense rainfall are also possible. Doppler Radar indicates strong rotation on a thunderstorm approaching Rockglen. Large hail and strong winds are also likely. The thunderstorm is moving southeast at 40 km/h.


This is a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. If you hear a roaring sound or see a funnel cloud, swirling debris near the ground, flying debris, or any threatening weather approaching, take shelter immediately. 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! Tornado warnings are issued when imminent or occurring thunderstorms are likely to produce or are producing tornadoes.
