Strong thunderstorms are pushing through southern Manitoba early Tuesday morning capable of producing winds upwards of 100 km/h along with large hail.
Environment Canada has been busy throughout the evening issuing a number of warnings and watches. Southwestern Manitoba was particularly in the path of several strong storms.
As of 4:05 a.m. areas under severe thunderstorm warnings include Winkler, Morden, Altona, Morris, and Brandon, among others.
The City of Winnipeg is among the many areas currently under a severe thunderstorm watch.
Environment Canada says thunderstorms will continue to push eastward early this morning, possibly developing into more severe weather.
Environment Canada says severe thunderstorms have occurred through the night, and will continue to be possible through the rest of the night. The approaching storms prompted the Manitoba Hydrologic Forecast Centre to issue an overland flood warning for all of southern Manitoba late Monday afternoon.
The national weather forecaster is urging people to be prepared for severe weather. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!
