Flood Caution from Toronto & Region Conservation Authority
Toronto and Region Conservation advises that Environment Canada is forecasting thunderstorms and showers for the Greater Toronto Area, which may produce considerable amounts of precipitation. Showers are expected to begin near midnight and will continue into tomorrow.
The forecasted rainfall may result in higher flows and water levels in all our rivers and streams, creating dangerous conditions. Although the location and intensity of heavy downpours remain uncertain, areas affected may experience localized flooding. Drivers should exercise extreme caution and avoid driving through low lying areas and roadways, particularly at underpasses.
Please alert any children under your care of these dangers and supervise their activities.
This Water Safety – Watershed Conditions Statement will be in effect through Friday, July 27, 2012. For more information please contact the on-call Flood Duty Officer at 416.661.6514.
