People in parts of southern Manitoba, including Winnipeg, are cleaning up from a storm Thursday evening that brought hail, strong winds and localized flooding in some areas.

Much of southern Manitoba remains under severe thunderstorm watches, while severe thunderstorm warnings are in effect for several areas.

Hail and fallen trees have been reported by residents in north Winnipeg neighbourhoods, including North Kildonan, Transcona and Garden City.

Environment Canada continues to track a cluster of storms capable of producing strong winds, large hail and heavy rain.

As of 9:40 p.m. Thursday, Environment Canada issued severe thunderstorm warnings for the following areas:

  • Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton, including Arborg, Hnausa and Hecla.
  • Moose Creek Provincial Forest, Pine Dock and Matheson Island.

  • Waterhen, Meadow Portage and Skownan.
  • R.M. of Armstrong, including Chatifeld, Inwood and Narcisse.
  • R.M. of Rockwood, including Teulon, Stonewall and Stony Mountain.

Tornado warnings were issued, then lifted a short time later, for two areas Thursday evening — the Rural Municipality of Reynolds, which includes the communities of Ste. Rita, Hadashville and Rennie, and the Rural Municipality of Grahamdale, including Gypsumville, Moosehorn and Camper.
