Tornado warnings issued for parts of Quebec

On their website, Environment Canada warned that residents in the Trois-Rivieres, Louiseville, Shawinigan and Berthierville-St-Gabriel areas should exercise caution as tornadoes could form in the wake of a severe thunderstorm.

An alert that was issued for the Rawdon-Joliette area has now been lifted.

Environment Canada advised those in an area with threatening weather approaching to take cover immediately.

Anyone observing a funnel cloud, swirling or flying debris or hear a roaring sound should go indoors to a room on the lowest floor and stay away from walls and windows. People in mobile homes, vehicles, tents, trailers and other free-standing or temporary shelters are advised to leave and seek shelter in a strong building.

Severe thunderstorm alerts have also been issued for the Mont-Tremblant-St-Michel-des-Saints and Laurentian regions.
