Did you know that as of September 1, 2019 our Alerts by Email feature has been discontinued?

As a result, we have launched a new PEI Stormwatch Discord server where users can join and participate in the discussion. Discord is a free text/voice application available on any PC or smartphone.


What is PEI Stormwatch?

PEI Stormwatch is a non-profit group of volunteers who provide weather and travel information for the Canadian Province of Prince Edward Island.

Who is PEI Stormwatch?

PEI Stormwatch was launched in 2009 by Westisle Composite High School student Daniel Deziel as a way to notify his friends and fellow classmates of school cancellations and delays. Since then, it has evolved to numerous volunteers across the Province that notify the public on a wide variety of emergency alerts and advisories.

We provide updates for the following:

  • Warnings, watches and statements issued by Environment Canada
  • DOT advisories (Road conditions, closures, plows, ect.)
  • Cancellations and delays for PSB, FLSB, Holland College and UPEI*
  • Wide spread power outages
  • PEI Office of Public safety advisories
  • PEI Government cancellations and delays

*Cancellations and delays are announced by school board officials between 6:00-7:00 AM each morning. If no announcement is made by 7:00 AM, schools will be operating normally.

How to get Alerts:

We do not provide updates for cancellations and delays for businesses, events and child daycare facilities. This is due to the large number of requests. However this info can be found on our Discord server posted by members of the community.
