WATERSHED CONDITIONS STATEMENT
DATE: TUESDAY OCTOBER 27, 2015
ISSUED TO: SCHOOL BOARDS, MUNICIPALITIES, LOCAL CONSERVATION AUTHORITIES, LOCAL POLICE, EMERGENCY SERVICES AND MEDIA
Toronto and Region Conservation advises that Environment Canada is forecasting a low pressure system associated with the remnants of Hurricane Patricia and will move through the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) in the early morning tomorrow. Heavier rainfall is expected Wednesday morning through to the afternoon. This weather system is expected to bring 45mm of rainfall with slightly more rain associated with potential thunderstorms before leaving the GTA tomorrow evening.
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.
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 Thursday October 29, 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.
