I’ve been keeping an eye on the Franktown radar this afternoon. The storm that has been making its way down the Ottawa Valley has been tracking in the direction of the magenta arrow in this image:
If you’re in the path of the storm, you should probably take cover. Environment Canada has issued a number of tornado warnings for places in Eastern Ontario this afternoon.
My parents are at the cottage on Golden Lake (the lake immediately above the tail of the arrow) and they told me that they’ve never seen a storm like this one. Lots of trees and branches are down, the power’s out and so are the land lines. And apparently they can see “round 2″ approaching. They’re in one of the places where a tornado warning has been issued, so hopefully they’re be ok!
