A tornado watch is in effect for parts of west-central Manitoba, and Environment Canada is urging people be prepared for the worst.

The tornado watch is in effect for the following regions: 

  • Dauphin, Russell, Roblin and Winnipegosis.
  • Minnedosa and Riding Mountain National Park.
  • Ste. Rose, McCreary, Alonsa and Gladstone.
  • Swan River, Duck Mountain and Porcupine Provincial Forest.
  • Arborg, Hecla, Fisher River, Gypsumville and Ashern.

People in these areas should take cover immediately if threatening weather approaches, Environment Canada says.

A high risk that severe thunderstorms will develop over southern MB Saturday afternoon. All forms of severe weather will be possible with these storms.
