TRCA has issued a Flood Outlook Watershed Conditions Statement. We have a bit of rain moving through.

FLOOD OUTLOOK

WATERSHED CONDITIONS STATEMENT

Date:             Tuesday july 7, 2015

Time:              2:30PM

Issued to:     school boards, municipalities, local conservation authorities, local police, emergency services and media 

Weather Conditions:

Toronto and Region Conservation is advising that Environment is forecasting that the frontal system moving through the GTA Tuesday afternoon and evening will cause 10-15 mm of rainfall through the Greater Toronto area and may result in localized rainfall of 30 to 40 mm or more in some areas.  .

Issues:

Forecasted rainfall amounts will result in higher than normal water levels and flows. Rivers and streams will be faster flowing, creating unsafe and/or dangerous conditions. There may be flooding on roadways and in low-lying areas.

The combination of slippery and unstable banks will create hazardous conditions close to any river, stream or other water bodies.

 Actions:

Please stay away from rivers and streams and exercise caution around all bodies of water. Please alert any children under your care of these dangers and supervise their activities.

This Flood Outlook Watershed Conditions Statement will be in effect through to Wednesday July 8, 2015. TRCA will continue to monitor streams and weather conditions closely. Further flood related messages will be issued as required.  For more information please contact the on-call Flood Duty Officer.
