Severe Thunderstorm Watch Lifted

Environment Canada has ended a severe thunderstorm watch for London-Middlesex.

A few lines of thunderstorms are moving eastward and are expected to pass through London this afternoon and evening.

The watch also covers Sarnia-Lambton, Elgin, and Oxford Counties and much of southern Ontario.

Environment Canada says the storm could produce damaging wind gusts, large hail, and torrential rain.

Lightning strikes kill 10 people every year in Canada. Emergency Management Ontario recommends taking shelter immediately if threatening weather approaches.
