AMHERST – A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for this afternoon and this evening.

Environment Canada says conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing large hail.

Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Be prepared for severe weather. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Stay indoors when a thunderstorm strikes. There isn't a place outside that is safe during a thunderstorm. In Canada, lightning kills up to 10 people every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Stay up to date with Weatheradio or your local media. Email reports of severe weather to or call 1-877-815-9900. You may tweet reports using the hashtag #NSStorm.
