Environment Canada ended its tornado watch and thunderstorm warning Friday evening for Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent. 

The regions were issued a severe thunderstorm warning around 3 p.m. Friday followed by a tornado watch at 3:42 p.m. Both of those have now ended. 

Parts of the region saw strong wind gusts, brief torrential downpours and hail. 

If threatening weather arrives, Environment Canada advises people to take cover immediately and avoid areas of buildings that could be affected by falling debris like tree limbs.
