Kindersley, Rosetown and surrounding areas have been placed under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch by Environment and Climate Change Canada.
The watch was issued just before 1:00 p.m. on Friday afternoon and is saying that conditions are favourable for the development of thunderstorms in parts of southern Saskatchewan.
Residents should watch out for large hail to the size of loonies, wind gusts to 90 km/h, and rainfall in excess of 50 mm, which is what Environment Canada is predicting.
The Thunderstorms are expected to dissipate this evening. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!
