This article highlights enhancements to the Ontario Emergency Public Warning System.
Environment Canada warnings will now include messaging from Emergency Management Ontario(EMO) telling you how to stay safe when severe weather threatens. These enhanced weather warnings will be distributed widely to the media and will be posted to the Environment Canada website. EMO will continue to forward severe weather warnings through our social media channels, but will no longer issue separate Red Alerts for tornadoes. Instead, we have created a new web subscriber service called "Severe Weather Warnings." To get severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings by e-mail, SMS, and RSS, please go to www.ontario.ca/emo and select Stay Connected.
