Default Re: Environment Canada to provide more details about severe weather risks

I was sent some examples today by an Environment Canada meteorologist as he was training with the new templates. He sent me what was on his workstation computer so they weren't formatted however I took the info and put it into what I *think* will be the format of the new warnings at EC. He said the Communities in the path include: part may not always be included as its forecaster discretion. THE EMO stuff may be formatted different...formatting over facebook doesn't tell me anything...

TORNADO WARNING  
ENDED BY ENVIRONMENT CANADA  
AT 5:50PM EDT THURSDAY AUGUST 20TH 2009
---------------------------------------------------------------------  
TORNADO WARNING FOR:
	MISSISSAUGA - BRAMPTON
	VAUGHAN - RICHMOND HILL - MARKHAM
	NEWMARKET - GEORGINA - NORTHERN YORK REGION

THIS WARNING IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7:00PM EDT
	
---------------------------------------------------------------------  
==DISCUSSION==  
AT 5:50PM EDT, METEOROLOGISTS WERE TRACKING A DANGEROUS THUNDERSTORM
THAT IS LIKELY PRODUCING A TORNADO. DOPPLER RADAR INDICATES STRONG
ROTATION NEAR BRAMPTON AND IT IS MOVING EAST-NORTHEAST.

COMMUNITIES IN THE PATH INCLUDE: VAUGHAN.

THIS IS A DANGEROUS AND POTENTIALLY LIFE-THREATENING SITUATION.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ONTARIO RECOMMENDS YOU THAT YOU TAKE COVER 
IMMEDIATELY, IF THREATENING WEATHER APPROACHES. GO INDOORS TO A
ROOM ON THE LOWEST FLOOR, AWAY FROM OUTSIDE WALLS AND WINDOWS,
SUCH AS A BASEMENT, BATHROOM, STAIRWELL OR INTERIOR CLOSET. LEAVE
MOBILE HOMES, VEHICLES, TENTS, TRAILERS, AND OTHER TEMPORARY
FREE-STANDING SHELTER, AND MOVE TO A STRONG BUILDING IF YOU CAN.
AS A LAST RESORT, LIE IN A LOW SPOT TO PROTECT YOUR HEAD FROM FLYING
DEBRIS. IF YOU HEAR A ROARING SOUND OR SEE A FUNNEL CLOUD, SWIRLING
DEBRIS NEAR THE GROUND, FLYING DEBRIS, OR ANY THREATENING WEATHER 
APPROACHING, TAKE SHELTER IMMEDIATELY. ENVIRONMENT CANADA CONTINUES 
TO MONITOR THE SITUATION CLOSELY. STAY TUNED TO YOUR LOCAL MEDIA
OR WEATHER RADIO FOR FURTHER UPDATES. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO REPORT
SEVERE WEATHER, YOU CAN SEND AN EMAIL TO STORM.ONTARIO@EC.GC.CA
  
END/OSPC
