OMG: Everyone attending the Canada day festival and fireworks needs to ne VERY aware of severe weather potential on Monday and Tuesday. Severe thunderstorms, deadly lightning and high winds which can also topple stages and tents.

Know where to go to stay safe from lightning or a tornado (Google it) and for updated weather warnings there is weatherserver.net which spits out emails from environment Canada with the warnings.

Take this weather very seriously.

  2. I definitely wouldn't have paid attention to this fact unless you had pointed it out. Thanks OP! Fuck the condescending sack of shit above me though.

  4. if you think there's even a slight chance of getting hit by lightning or a tornado then i think you're just a tad paranoid

    1. While your statement holds some fact it is still better to be aware of these situations and know what to do instead of being ignorant and simply ignoring the danger due to it being a "slight chance".

      The tornado that hit Angus occurred on a day where there was a "slight chance" of tornadic activity in SW Ontario.

  7. Chill. It's Canadian weather reporting. It's shown as ten times more severe than it will actually be

    1. Environment Canada is actually quite conservative with their weather reports, compared to other agencies in the US and Canada.

    2. ^Proof? Their reports have always seemed outlandish to me. Especially compared with the reports in the colder states in the US. They just deal with the cold, instead of making it out to be the apocalypse.

  9. Well, after reading this I will at least bring a rain jacket, which I wasn't planning on doing before I read this. And I will make sure I have the bus schedules with me so I can get home when I want to. I am grateful for this info you provided, now I will be prepared in case it rains. Thank you. (Not sarcastic, I am also thanking you for bringing my attention to this.)
