- 40 to 50 mm of precipitation forecast for tomorrow
- River levels expected to be very high
- Fast flowing water and slippery stream banks
Water levels on the Sydenham River and its tributaries will be pushed to top of bank conditions this weekend. Precipitation forecast calls for 40 to 50 mm of rain this Saturday. Additional periods of thunderstorm activity is also expected to bring significant localized downpours in some areas. Many rural areas including fields and floodplains are saturated from the rainfall earlier this week. This has the potential for immediate run off into rivers and streams rapidly.
If forecast rainfall materializes, water levels will remain high over the weekend and into early next week. Drains and smaller watercourses in upstream areas may also experience localized flooding in some areas especially during rain events.
Municipal emergency response staff and road superintendents should monitor local conditions closely.
Residents are reminded to avoid watercourses and flooded areas due to slippery banks. Parents in particular are urged to keep their children away from floodplain areas.
The St. Clair Region Conservation Authority will monitor the flood condition of the watersheds in the region and will provide warnings to municipal officials and media in the event conditions develop which could result in the potential of flooding.
This message will remain in effect until Monday, June 29th, 2015 unless otherwise updated.
