My friends family in Tecumseh are fine. My grandparents are near Sarnia, keeping an eye out for them. Tornado Watch issued for all southeast Michigan.

At one point, radar might have indicated a debris ball near Maidstone, Ontario southeast of Windsor.

Warning was downgraded to a watch, but a severe thunderstorm warning remains in effect.

So far just rain in the GTA. Hoping some of this weather makes its way up here.
