Flood Status: $theCurrentState

$theCurrentState in effect until Apr 01, 2016

TRCA has issued a Watershed Conditions Statement for Water Safety. Please exercise caution around all bodies of water and stay away from rivers and streams. Please alert any children under your care of these dangers and supervise their activities. Please avoid driving through flooded roadways.

 

Weather Conditions:

Toronto and Region Conservation advises that Environment Canada is forecasting 15mm to 25mm of rain throughout the day on Thursday, with a chance of thunderstorms in the late evening that can bring an additional 10mm to 15mm of rain in isolated areas.

 

Issues:

This amount of precipitation will result in higher than normal water levels and flows in Greater Toronto Area rivers and streams that, in combination with slippery and unstable banks, will create hazardous conditions close to any water body.

 

We are continuing to monitor the weather and watershed conditions.

 

Actions:

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

 

This Water Safety Watershed Conditions Statement will be in effect through Friday, April 1, 2016.

 

For more information please contact the on-call Flood Duty Officer.
